You never communicate in person.
Whether your boss prefers Slack, text messages or old-fashioned email, it's important to be accessible on whichever medium she prefers. However, it's also easy to rely so much on digital communication that it becomes harder to make a personal connection.

Your move: Pop into your boss's office (or schedule some FaceTime if one of you works remotely) to go over big projects. Discussions about your career path at the company should take place face-to-face whenever possible.
