My CBTF Family
As I write this I truly can’t believe this is my last day at CBTF. After moving to New York City 2 years ago I was blessed to find this job opportunity. While I was excited to accept my first real job in the big apple I had no idea how much I would enjoy it. I’m not trying to make it sound easy. There were plenty of trying times…wondering if anyone would show up to our first walk on Long Island, having the last Big Apple Circus performance before Hurricane Sandy, and working with consultants to make sure we’re raising as much money as possible to support CBTF programs. I have met the most amazing people while working here. I feel so thankful that I had the chance to meet and spend time with some of CBTF’s teen and young adult survivors. I loved them stopping by my office to say hi and they were always eager to help out. The quality of life events where I met CBTF families reminded me of why our small staff works so hard. I have the most amazing coworkers! They are welcoming, compassionate, and full of energy. I feel so lucky to have not only met and worked with them but count them as friends. I also want to thank our Executive Director, Joe Fay, for trusting me to take on new challenges and teaching me lots of things about nonprofits and business in general.
As much as I would love to stay at CBTF, with the people I love working with, and where I feel most comfortable…I decided it’s time to pursue a new challenge. I will still be in New York City so I hope to volunteer at some of CBTF’s events. Thank you to each one of you who I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and working with. CBTF will always hold a special place in my heart.
