I’m starting a new professional chapter in August. I’ve accepted an offer to be the public affairs manager for LDS Business College in Salt Lake City.
This is an exciting time where my personal and professional experience has prepared me well for this new role. I feel a strong affinity for the mission, vision and values espoused by LDS Business College, which is sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
I’m thrilled to become part of a team focused on changing the lives of students now and in the future, for them and their families, especially with a component of faith included in the educational experience. I’m looking forward to rubbing shoulders with students, faculty, staff and other supporters of the college.
I think it’s great that some 30 percent of the school’s student body is composed of international students — talk about diversity and the strength of different cultures informing a positive, hands-on education and world view.
I was pleased when, during the job interview process, the college’s HR representative offered a prayer for guidance and inspiration to know what would be best for the college and me. I thought that was both awesome and refreshing.
I’m joining a four-person communications team at the school. I look forward to our collaboration as we support the initiatives identified by the school’s administration and board of directors. I know our work will be vital to the institution’s continued growth and success, and that the college president has trust and confidence in the team.
Sounds like a perfect fit to me. I can’t wait to get started.
I’ll also continue my communications consulting, working on non-competing projects when time permits, as well as participating and performing in the occasional community musical theater production (like I’m doing this summer in Joseph). Life’s good.
