After almost forty years in the parks and recreation profession, the time has come to figure out what I want to do when I grow up and on Friday that journey begins.  I have been blessed with some terrific stops along the way and my time at mParks has been the capstone. 
Serving our profession and the association for the past seven years has been an honor and privilege. The road has been rocky at times but together we made it through and today we are positioned for continued growth and success Thank you to all who serve(d) on the leadership team for your vision and guidance; thank you to all the staff who continue to serve the association with dedication, integrity and professionalism; and, thank you to all of our members who have lifted this association and our profession with your passion and commitment.
May the joy and the wonder of the season fill your hearts. May 2018 and beyond be filled with much happiness and good health for each and every one of you.
