## What does this PR do? How does it affect users?
## How should this be tested?
Step through the code line by line. Things to keep in mind as you review:
 - Are there any edge cases not covered by this code?
 - Does this code follow conventions (naming, formatting, modularization, etc) where applicable?
Fetch the branch and/or deploy to staging to test the following:
- [ ] Does the code compile without warnings (check shell, console)?
- [ ] Do all tests pass?
- [ ] Does the UI, pixel by pixel, look exactly as expected (check various screen sizes, including mobile)?
