"When one door closes, another door opens."
Today is my final day at a company that I've been with for the past 3 1/2 years. I was the second employee hired and got the privilege of watching this place grow from eight people to 130. I credit my time here with valuable knowledge, friendships and experiences. It was at this company that "The Lunch Belle" was born in July 2007. After having managed our daily-catered-lunch and events program for a little over one year, I decided that I needed an outlet to voice my many opinions on the NYC dining scene and all of my roller coaster interactions with caterers. One blog post became two, then ten, and before I knew it, I had my first freelance assignment for NY Post's Page Six Magazine.
Bidding adieu to what's left of my fellow colleagues will be difficult, but as I walk away from this experience, I can't help but smile when I think about how much I've grown and taken with me.
