Brunson previously told PEOPLE that it comes down to passion when it comes to wearing so many different hats in her work on the hit ABC sitcom.

"I don't have a method. I just feel like I'm passionate about it," she said. "I recently talked with Mindy Kaling, who's running two shows, and you just care about it so much that you're able to organize stuff."
