This month I will be leaving my Outreach Services role at the Berwyn Public Library for a new role as Marketing & Financial Development Director at the Pav YMCA in Berwyn. I look forward to using the skills I developed in marketing and grant writing at the Berwyn Library in my new role at the YMCA. In terms of career advancement, it's a natural step forward.
For the last 4 months, I have been working in both organizations in order to make a smooth transition. After 6 years with the Library, a long transition period is just the right way to go--most of my personal identity has been with the Library and the programs we created. So from here, I have to begin thinking of myself in a new light.
