We can all relate to the popular phrase “time flies” – especially after you have children, and you watch the years pass by and fade together. Time also flies when you blink and realize you have been in your career for the past 10 years. Working takes up much of your life, so it is important to do what you love.
In April, I celebrated a decade at the Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce.
I remember vividly the call to accept my first position – in my first job out of college into the real world – as the Administrative & Events Assistant. Little did I know that 10 years later, I’d be successful in the same organization, in a job I absolutely love, with people I truly appreciate, and in a totally different position as Director of Events.
After ten years at the Chamber, it has been fun looking back at some highlights of my career:
The list goes on.
I don’t think any other career would connect me to the organizations and people that make Duluth and our region great. Love what you do, and you will never work a day in your life, isn’t that the saying? It’s true. Thanks to you, our members, for making this ride a good one.
I love what I do because of you.
I’m looking forward to those next 10 years, stick with me for what is to come next at the Chamber.
In appreciation and support,
Director of Events
