Inaugural Episode with Wework and ATDC Advanced Technology Development Center at Georgia Tech Aja Anderson, City Lead wework Tenacious. Ambitious. Passionate. I get things done. There's never an excuse for missing the mark in my professional universe. If someone says "we can't", I get us to "we can."
