A new day

Today I’m doing something I haven’t done in more than a decade. Start a new job.

As I step away from Y&R Austin, I have terrific memories and friendships that mean the world to me. There are work accomplishments, of course, but when I look back at my 13 years on Mars, it’s the people I think of most. We say “once a martian, always a martian” and it’s true. I’ve already been drafted to plan the next SMEX happy hour. A duty I’ll take very seriously, I promise you.

And it’s for people that I’m doing what comes next, serving as a HR and operations specialist at Gateway. I’m excited about being able to use my talents in a way that will make a positive impact on our city and beyond. And this move will also give me the opportunity to consult with partner companies in the communications field and non-profit environments. Firsts can be scary, but a few butterflies never hurt anyone. In fact, it’s what often makes us fly.
