Voxer offered us the chance to belong to a virtual "department" of sorts. We began sharing our struggles and successes via Voxer. Many times, in sharing our struggles, we were able to relate to one another and offer suggestions and solutions. And, when successes were shared, the group genuinely felt a sense of pride.”
