Goodbye Column: Claire Beckey

Human Resources Director

Credit: Claire Beckey


Rowdy has always been a home away from home for me. It is hard to believe that my time at this magazine, just over three years is coming to an end. I joined Rowdy as soon as I got my college acceptance letter. Rowdy helped me feel welcome in Gainesville and I made many lifelong friends along the way. While I am excited about new opportunities and challenges that lie ahead, I will miss this incredible publication and the many wonderful people I have met.

Working as the human resources director has been an incredible experience. I have had the privilege of working with so many talented individuals who have inspired me with their creativity, dedication, and passion. I am proud of the work we have done together and of the incredible impact we continue to lead with.

The people I have met here have become like a family to me, and I will miss them dearly. We have shared many laughs, tears, and triumphs, and I will never forget the memories we have created together.

As I move on to the next chapter of my life, I will always carry with me the lessons and experiences I have gained at this magazine. I will forever be grateful for the opportunities I have had here and for the wonderful people who have made this experience so special.

To the readers of this magazine, I want to say thank you for your support and engagement. You have been the driving force behind the work we do, and I hope that this publication will continue to inform, educate, and inspire you for many years to come. And to my colleagues and friends, I want to say thank you for the memories, the laughs, and the countless ways you have enriched my life. You are some of the most talented, creative, and kind-hearted people I have ever met, and I feel so fortunate to have worked alongside you.

As I close this chapter of my life, I do so with a heavy heart, but also with the excitement and anticipation of new beginnings.

Thank you for everything.

Claire Beckey
