LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE: When someone begins a new job, typically they are allotted some “learning curve” time. Well, that’s not at all what happened when Rachel Gantz was hired as an ad designer in early October. In fact, she jumped in during the Indy’s biggest issue of the year — Best Of. But despite being thrown into the deep end, the cat-loving Long Beach State graduate wasn’t frightened off. Rather, she has quickly become a beloved member of the Ad Pro team. Her sunny personality and arty ways — she is a master with colored paper and a glue gun, oh, and graphic design — are a delightful addition to The Indy family.
