A Fresh Start

I can’t believe it’s been nearly a year since I shared a post in this space! I’m so happy to be back though, with a fresh new look and some new ideas for posts I can’t wait to share.

For the past year, I was fully absorbed in startup life and this site ended up a little neglected. Then last week, I was blindsided by a layoff. As I’m sure anyone who’s experienced that kind of thing can attest, the first couple days are rough. 

Now though? I’m feeling refreshed, reenergized, and excited about starting a new adventure, whatever that might look like.

I’m looking for another full-time, permanent position, but I’ve also been working with consulting clients and drumming up some new ones. I’m also enjoying digging into some professional development projects I’d been putting off for too long, like learning to code and brushing up on new marketing tactics and tools.

And I’ve been working on growing my network here in Portland and elsewhere and have already met so many interesting new people.

While a layoff is the last thing I wanted, I’m grateful for all that I learned in that role and I’m excited for what’s still to come.

Know someone looking for a writer or content marketer? Need a social media manager? Or just local to Portland and want to have a cup of coffee? I’d love to hear from you!
