Well, the word is out now, so it’s time for me to announce it: you are looking at my command’s newest Strategic Engagements Coordinator. After eight months working in a position created to take advantage of my expertise, I managed to convince my bosses that I really AM a hard worker who knows what she’s doing, and is a pleasure to work with…so they decided to keep me.
I’ve accepted their job offer, and will spend a few more years making strategy and communications recommendations to our senior military leaders over here in Europe. I get breathless when I think of all the people who moved mountains and signed off on this … I am genuinely grateful for the support and opportunity to continue serving my country in this position with such a wonderful team.
Thank you, especially, to Martin, the kids, and Amanda, for everything.
