Every year I sit down to think about three people that have impacted my year for #thankitforward and every time it’s impossible. I am so grateful to work on a team of fun, passionate, hard-working people. It truly makes my job a joy.
And beyond that, I get to spend my days interacting with awesome community managers around the world. People how are doing innovative, amazing work to improve their organizations.
Narrowing it down is hard, but for you, I tried.
For my three:
@Hillary Boucher is the work partner you dream of. She’s fun, funny and always tells me the
truth. She pushes me to be better, at work and not at work, and I am so, so happy to have her in my life.
@Jerry Green has handled every weird thing I’ve thrown at him this year with a smile. It appears that he’s good at everything (and so tall!) and we’re so lucky he’s part of our team.
I’m going to cheat for my third one and say: every single person I’ve met in real life at events over the past year. As I mentioned, working from home can be tough (and awesome, but lonely sometimes). My favorite part of my job is meeting all of you in real life, sharing drinks, stories, crab legs, late nights, early morning, and laughs. There is no way I’ll remember everyone, but here’s a quick list:
@Monique van den Berg
Ok, I’m done. If I forgot your name, I apologize – please know that you made my year better, too!
