What am I doing now?

I am still focusing on my learning and growing. As I am typing this, I feel a little silly because I have chosen to learn and grow as a way of life, so the sentence itself feels vague.

I’m learning to communicate and collaborate more effectively by volunteering to mentor early-career developers with The Collab Lab. I will be leading a team during the summer cohort.

I’m engaging in the communities I’ve chosen to be a part of and currently thinking about how to pay it forward in impactful ways.

Reactivated my clay studio membership to wrap up loose ends, vacate my shelf, then pausing my clay art endeavors for 2021. Hoping to pick it up again in 2022.

I am fortunate to join a team with the mindset: “Mentorship in all directions.” For the first time in my career, I feel supported and empowered to self-organize as an individual contributor.

Last update on June 2021. Why now
