Today is my last day working with the College of Agriculture. Monday begins an entirely new and very exciting working chapter in my life, but for today I am just so incredibly thankful for my nine years in environmental research. I had no plan to go into this field, but when I was offered a job as a biology analyst I snatched it up like it was nobodies business. I worked in that lab for five years before switching over to the university to continue environmental work, while also considering maybe possibly taking a master's class or two... That was over four years ago.
Over these last four years I have interviewed and been hired for three different positions in this building. I have had the chance to work with so many amazing people and learn so many things. I have made life long friends and could not have asked for a better group of people to spend these years with. I was sitting in this building the day I found out Missy was sick, and the love and support that has poured over me through the most difficult time in my life have been moving beyond words.
