New Beginnings!

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

I think this is the longest I've gone without posting, and I have to admit I am very impressed with myself. It wasn't even that long! (Or I could be totally wrong.)

I am so excited to announce that I officially have a new job! It's actually been official for a few weeks, but I started yesterday so there's no turning back now.

You hear about those people who quit their jobs to do something they're really passionate about, and (being the kind of envious person I am) I thought "If they can do it, so can I!" I put a lot of thought, tears and confusion into my decision - and finally decided I wanted to pursue something in the non-profit sector. It sounds cliche, but at the end of the day I want to be doing something that matters. Something that when I go home at night I know I put 110% into making the world a better place. And something that, when we have kids, I feel confident knowing I'm working my hardest to help better their future.

I heard about this opportunity through a friend, and the more I learned about the organization the more I fell in love with it. After various rounds of interviews, I finally found out I GOT IT! And the timing could not have been more perfect - it was the Thursday before Memorial Day and I had Friday off. (Memorial Day was a huge celebration weekend in my family - which you can learn about here and here - and this was just another celebration to pile on!)

I am the new Southeast Regional Coordinator for Share Our Strength! They're We're working to end childhood hunger in America by connecting kids with the nutritious food they need to ensure they lead healthy, active lives. It is such a fabulous organization and I still have to pinch myself to believe that I am a part of it! I will be working on the Culinary Events team and my responsibilities will revolve around assisting the rest of the Southeast team with everything related to the various culinary fundraising events we put on. I encourage you to look around their website and check it out.

As you can tell, I am so very happy and blessed to have this opportunity. I could not be more thankful for His timing!
