It is with both sadness and joy that I announce my planned departure from Arm In Arm in October of this year. My experience over the past eight plus years at Arm In Arm has been profoundly meaningful and helped me grow tremendously both professionally and personally. I am proud of the work our staff, board and community have accomplished on behalf of our neighbors’ well-being during that time. Now, as a recent graduate from UPenn’s masters in applied positive psychology, I am very excited about pursuing my interests in this field, which focuses on helping individuals and communities to thrive and flourish. There are many opportunities to bring the concepts of positive psychology, including strengthening resilience and well-being to individuals, organizations and our community, which I will be exploring in the coming months.
This is a significant moment for Arm In Arm and for me. With an effective and committed staff and strong board leadership, Arm In Arm is positioned for growth and impact in the coming years. We are dedicated to our mission to provide food, housing and a path to financial stability for our neighbors in need, and I look forward to the exciting ways that our next leader will execute on these goals. I am here to support the board and staff for a smooth transition in the coming months.
It has been a privilege to know so many of you over the years, and I hope to continue our friendship in my new role as an Arm In Arm supporter. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out if you’d like to talk about Arm In Arm and its bright future.
