We have enjoyed great success on both fronts thanks to the persistence and hard work of both Tricia and Ellie. Both of these talented women have been with Oxygen for over five years and have made significant contributions to Oxygen�s growth,� said Murano. �We are thrilled to have Carla join our team.
