As I sit here and write my goodbye column, I can’t help but feel a bittersweet mix of emotions. On the one hand, I'm thrilled to be moving on to new opportunities and challenges. But on the other hand, I'm sad to say goodbye to my safe place.
When I joined as an account executive, I never could have imagined the cool, amazing people I would meet and the experiences I gained. Over the years, I was lucky enough to work with some of the most talented and dedicated people in the publication. Rowdy was the reason I decided to pursue a career in the media industry.
As I grew and developed in my role, I was honored to be promoted to business director, where I had the chance to lead a team of equally passionate individuals. Together, we accomplished some truly amazing things, and I'm incredibly proud of everything we achieved.
But now, it's time for me to say goodbye. As much as I love this magazine and the people who make it great, I know that it's time for me to move on to the next chapter in my life. I'm excited for what lies ahead, and I know that the skills and experiences I gained here will serve me well in the future.
To everyone who made my time at this magazine so special, thank you. Thank you for your hard work, your dedication, and your friendship. I will always look back on this time with fondness, and I know that I will miss you all.
But even as I say goodbye, I know that this magazine will continue to thrive and grow. With such an incredible team of people at the helm, there's no doubt in my mind that it will continue to be a leader in the industry for years to come.
So with that, I bid you all farewell. It's been an incredible journey, and I'm so grateful to have been a part of it. Thank you for everything.
