For the past three-and-a-half years, I’ve worked part-time in marketing for Memphis Center for Urban Theological Studies (MCUTS). As MCUTS is a small nonprofit, marketing included a wide range of responsibilities — maintaining the website, managing online advertising and social media, overseeing design projects, and writing ad copy, grants, and everything in between. The variety of work kept me engaged, stimulated, and helped me to grow personally and professionally.
As of this Thursday, March 12, I will leave MCUTS to focus full time on my own business. It’s been a difficult decision, as the sense of community, love, and friendship I’ve enjoyed with my fellow staff members is a hard thing to leave behind. Never have I worked with a more dedicated, passionate, and caring group of people, and I’ll miss them terribly.
I’ll be working primarily from my home office and occasionally at Cowork Memphis, an awesome co-working space in Cooper-Young. I’m looking forward to getting back to the gym on a regular basis, cooking a few meals, planting my garden, having time to write again, and wearing jeans pretty much all the time.
