It’s with a mix of sadness, nervous anticipation and excitement that I can tell you I am leaving the Ontario government and moving on to pastures new.
Since moving to Canada in 2003, and joining the government in 2004, I’ve had the privilege and good fortune to work with some wonderfully smart and creative people and to make a difference in a variety of areas.
From participating in pre-budget consultations for the newly-elected government in early 2004 to leading a re-vamp of the government’s communications training, to planning and rolling-out high-profile announcements in recent months, life has never been dull.
It’s important to me to constantly strive for growth and that’s what I am doing. I have accepted a position with Thornley Fallis Communications Inc as a Senior Consultant, working out of their Toronto office.
This is a wonderfully exciting time for me, both personally and professionally. I look forward to the opportunity to learn from some of Canada’s leaders in public relations and social media, and to hopefully add my two cents to the mix along the way.
So, farewell and thank you to all my colleagues in the Ontario government. You’ve all made the last few years fly by in a blur and I’ve learned an incredible amount from you.
To my new colleagues at Thornley Fallis, I look forward to working with – and learning from – you all!
