  • The POWER of BETTER - episode 1: IT'S WHAT'S ON THE OUTSIDE THAT COUNTS
    Meet Laura Casale, staff engineer in program management at QuadTech. But she's also a mom who's very particular about the food she buys. Gluten-free, all the way.

Because if it doesn't look good, it doesn't move off the shelf.
