Take this job and love it

1 Comment

Yeah, so, after 10 1/2 years, today is my last day at PsPrint/Deluxe. I’ll be starting at Zendesk in September as a UX content strategist, and I’m soooooo happy.

My life has changed so much since I first started at PsPrint. My mighty, mighty good man David and I had been together about 2 months at that point. Soon, we moved in together (my first-time living with a boyfriend even though I was in my 30s). I got breast cancer. I had a mastectomy on one side. We got married. We had a baby. I got breast cancer again. I had a mastectomy on the other side. I did chemotherapy. I came back to work and moved from the Oakland office to the San Francisco office.

And during that time, my job changed from managing the PsPrint Blog to being responsible for all the content on the website and launching all of their social channels. I wrote promotional emails and transactional emails. I wrote UX copy. I handled angry customers on social media. I produced videos. I hosted webinars.

I learned so much about content creation and, well, about myself during my time at PsPrint and Deluxe. I’m stronger than I thought, and I’m more confident now. And I met some truly awesome people. Today I’m saying goodbye to many of them as coworkers and hello to them as my friends.

So, yeah, you guys! I’m so freakin’ excited for my new role with a new team at a new company.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, go to baseball games, kick breast cancer's ass, explore with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

One thought on “Take this job and love it

  1. Congratulations! That’s so exciting. I worked at a company for 29 years – made it to VP of IT and had HAD IT. I quit and took a job programming (my true love). It’s SO great. Every day is solving problems and programming and no whining from unhappy employees. I’ve read and experienced that unfortunately programmers get promoted into jobs they hate – management. They don’t get to program as much and then you deal with all kinds of people and problems. I’ll take programming any day. UX is so cool!

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
