I’m never good at saying goodbye to anything. In the last year, I said goodbye to my grandfather, the family dog, my trusty Honda Accord and some roommates.
Now, I’m saying goodbye to a job.
I’m leaving my job as Social Media Director at The Tennessean on September 30th to start a new job.
I have grown to really enjoy working with the people I see on a daily basis and will miss them dearly.
Having the opportunity to help move the newspaper into a new realm of social media and other online elements was an exciting one - especially in a time of uncertainty in the industry. It is one that I will cherish for a lifetime.
The Tennessean is in the right hands with the current leadership. It’s an exciting time for the paper, and I’m going to enjoy watching it grow online as a reader and fan.
I want to thank everyone that I worked with along the way, and to those who had trust in me to do the right thing each and every day.
And I want to think everyone that followed along with what I did at The Tennessean. I am honored to have received the respect of so many individuals within the tech community who believed I was (or even wasn’t) doing the right things.
I always had pride in the job I had with The Tennessean and I will never forget the people and memories.
Now, some of you might be wondering where I’m going. This post does make it sound like I’m moving away to join the Peace Corps. That’s not it.
Starting October 4th, I will be working at 501 Broadway with the Nashville Predators as an Interactive Marketing Coordinator.
I’m not going to go into too much depth about my new job, but I’m very excited for the opportunity and what the future holds.
Cheers for now.
