The end of a year can be bittersweet. It’s heartwarming to reminisce about the highs of the year and reflect on the lessons you’ve learned, and always exciting to think about the next adventure the new year has to bring. This year, these notions hold especially true. This is my last e-newsletter as the senior content strategist for Women in Retail Leadership Circle (WIRLC).

Looking back at what an incredible year it’s been, I’m so thankful to have been a part of so many momentous events for WIRLC — our fifth annual Women in Retail Leadership Summit, helping to cultivate our first annual On the Road events, meeting and talking with our wonderful community, and more. I’ve loved every moment of it, and it’s been an honor.

In the spirit of keeping this letter short and sweet, I want to say thank you to this incredible community of women. You inspire me each and every day, and it has been my absolute privilege to work alongside the hardest working team I know. My respect and love for this team is unconditional, and I wish WIRLC nothing but success in the future.

But enough of the sappiness 😉 Please feel free to reach out and connect with me via LinkedIn or email ( I’m always game for a chat, cup of coffee or margarita. 😊

Signing off,
