I’m hanging up my Web Project Manager hat.

Starting next week, I’m moving on to a new chapter of my professional life. I’m taking the brand new position of Communications Specialist for the North Carolina state sealNorth Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts in Raleigh. This position is more in-line with my long-term career goals and passions of writing, marketing, communication, and media — plus, I’ll help manage their web properties. I’m excited to start making a difference by joining the “family business” of judicial system employment.

It’s always a tough choice to leave a good job and make a career leap of faith — but I’m ready to follow my passions and steer my career in their direction. I’ve had a great run as a Web Project Manager, and it’s certainly bittersweet to be leaving it behind. I still plan on keeping up with the latest web trends and dabbling in web work whenever possible, though!

I really can’t speak highly enough of my colleagues and clients at Viget. I actually thought about naming this post, “Why I’m leaving a good career and a good job at a good company with good coworkers who do good work on good projects for good clients” — but that was too long, of course. If you’re interested, I definitely recommend you check out Viget’s careers page.

Wish me luck on my new venture!
