I took over the Office Manager job at SYC in 1991 when my youngest child was in first grade. I expected to stay until he began high school.
Well…he’s 31 now.
I so enjoyed the people—my coworkers and getting to know the SYC parents—and the job turned out to be a terrific fit for my skills, for my personality and for the 15 years of my life that entailed a lot of elder-caregiving, that my plan to leave SYC before retirement age very happily flew out the window.
I’m both excited and a little sad to have decided that this will be my last year at SYC. My husband Lee has been retired for 7 years, we’re wanting to have a little more time and flexibility for traveling before we require eldercare ourselves!
Holly Adams, who has been working with me for 3 years will be running the office single-handedly next year. But you probably haven’t seen the last of me because I’ll be volunteering to help her whenever she can stand to have me around!
