Two weeks ago today, I resigned from my current job and gave 4 weeks' notice. I have two weeks left. In July, I will begin a new journey - head first in the field of grief and loss - as a Hospice Social Worker for a large health network. I'm excited. Helping people as they die, helping people as they cope with the death of those they love, walking through the bereavement process day after day - those are the things I know I can offer with compassion and skill.

It's bittersweet. I will miss my current place of employment, my current co-workers, and the residents I serve. But for multiple reasons, it's time to move on. 

This new position is one of many changes to come. There's more in store and probably more to say. Stay tuned. My blogging days aren't over. 


  1. That is SO AWESOME! You will make such a difference for so many families. I selfishly hope that it's my large health network you are coming to work for, but even if it's the "other one," I am so excited for you!

  2. You are a shining star of courage and resilience. Those that will be the recipient of your services in your new role will be blessed. I wish the best to you, Tumbler and Juice.

  3. I haven't had a chance to read back over all the blog posts I've missed, but I feel so certain that this new opportunity was meant for you. You were meant to move on to a place where you can extend your reach to others and share your experience, strength and hope.


Help me feel less alone.
