CHCO Blog – A Fond Farewell

Release Date: December 21, 2021

Well folks, it’s a wrap! 40+ years of federal service and at the end of the year, I’m heading toward a new and exciting chapter. I’m often asked—what will you do—and the answer is: whatever and however the spirit moves me! I look forward to time with my family and friends, traveling, offering energy renewal retreats, speaking engagements and perhaps even being a journey guide…but mainly I look forward to just jumping off the cliff and letting my wings take me wherever the wind decides.

I wouldn’t change a thing about these past 40 year. I loved every experience, every lesson, every adventure, every tear and every laugh. The public servants, especially each one of you, I’ve spent the vast majority of my adult life with are dedicated, passionate, professional and above all else human. You, like me, care about the mission and the people you serve within this great United States and around the world. My heart, my admiration and my respect will always be with you!
