If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that Jan 4 was my last day at DDB. Today, I start a fresh adventure in a new position at McDonald’s Corporation! For 4 years I’ve been helping to spearhead all things social on the agency side, and I’m officially making the transition to client side, helping to guide national social media campaigns and content for the brand. Can I get a collective “i’m lovin it” and perhaps a little “Ba da ba ba ba?!”
The move to go client side wasn’t one that I took lightly. I loved my team at DDB, especially my work wife Maya (Hi girl, love yew!), and as a whole it’s been the best place I’ve ever worked. But, when life hands you big opportunities, you take them. And this was a big one indeed.
A new job is always a bit scary, but I’ve got to tell you, I’m more excited than anything. It was sad to leave DDB, but the calmness that I had while walking out the door tells me that I was ready. I’m looking forward to continuing what I moved to Chicago for in the first place – new experiences, new perspectives, and the opportunity to keep learning and growing. This new role will not doubt be all that and more.
Wish me luck! xx
