I often reflect on what I’m most grateful for, but given the season it seems an apropos time to share it.
First and foremost, I am so grateful for the amazing clients and nonprofits I’ve had the opportunity to work with over the years. Everyday I’m amazed by their creativity, tenacity, vision, and passion. I’m beyond grateful for the mutual trust we’ve developed, the new adventures each day brings day, and the opportunity to continually learn and grow with them.
To the mentors who have guided and encouraged me academically, professionally or personally – I am forever indebted! And to all of my PR colleagues and cohorts (fellow board members of the Phoenix PRSA, Andrea Aker of Aker Ink, Holly Harmon), I have truly enjoyed collaborating, brainstorming and serving as each other’s sounding boards…together we raise the bar on this challenging occupation.
Last, but certainly not least I’m grateful for those members of the media who, though they may not always respect the PR profession, they at least hear us out and give us a platform to share our client’s news.
Oh, and I can’t forget my wonderful family, friends, and silly dogs who bring so much laughter to my life. Thank you for everything! Don’t forget to share your gratitude with the people in your life, personally or professionally. The smallest gestures go a long way!
