I regularly feel like one of the luckiest people around – I have the perfect job. Not only do I come to work every day to do something that I am passionate about, but I am also surrounded by people who truly believe that we can make positive change in the world by taking action and making simple changes.
It seems a little surreal to leave the perfect job – but adventure (and my partner’s return to school) calls, and our little family is bound for Kingston, Ontario come September. Looking back, I am amazed at how far this little project has come and how much energy, time and creativity people are willing to invest in what we’re doing – it has been an amazing gift for me to be involved, and leaving is certainly bittersweet.
One of the things I am most proud of is the staff team that we have assembled – the EGP staff are some of the most enthusiastic, competent, efficient (and FUN) people that I can imagine – it is remarkable how much they can accomplish in a single day. I am thrilled that Emily Jubenvill has agreed to step into my role and manage the project. Together with Gavin and Jason, the growing team, and all of your ongoing efforts, I know that the tremendous momentum we have built will continue to grow. I could not imagine leaving the EGP in more competent hands.
Thank you for all of your support!
