Currently: In the back making props
Prior to their arrival at Value Vision The New Receptionist worked at the Coffee Barn (also located in Berkeley Plaza) and is still a regular even though the coffee isn’t good and the Barn (not to be confused with The Dog Grooming Barn) has been working out the kinks for years with no advances in quality. During their late night interview at Value Vision, also their first appearance in BWOT, The New Receptionist bonded with Dr. Charles and still feels some affection for him even amidst the alleged nefarious activities happening in and around the basement in the plaza. Though conflicted, they joined The Receptionist in leaving Value Vision and vocalizing their concerns with its business practices to the community. While at Value Vision, The New Receptionist took primary responsibility for the Newborn Baby as none of the other doctors took the job seriously. The New Receptionist’s story has advanced little in recent years as they are busy writing for other characters and making props. The Newborn Baby is with The New Receptionist to this day. The New Receptionist helps write and produce By Way of Today along with The Receptionist, Cameron Gibson, and Kyle Schlie. In 2022 it was revealed that The New Receptionist is actually Roman Brady.
