As I venture into a new opportunity and my next big endeavor, I find it necessary to pause and give a moment of thanks. This gratitude must be shared for it is the love and support I have felt over the past several weeks (and before) that has made the next step in my life's journey one that I am confident in taking. It reminds me that anything is possible when we work together. I feel extremely lucky to be in such an amazing city, full of people working hard to make it even better and that relationships here are formed and forged through collaboration and connection. Baltimore is always ready to show its best and worst aspects simultaneously and it is this honesty which I believe motivates many to do what they can to change what needs to change and highlight all the beautiful and wonderful things that happen.

Thank you to everyone that has reached out this week. Having good news to share about my new role at Baltimore Clayworks has been met with such beautiful sentiments from so many that I know, have known, have worked with and continue to work with that I cannot begin to tell you all how much this means. I look forward to the challenges and joys this new chapter will bring and am grateful for all who are a part of it. Thank you again and again.
