Hello, New Adventure


As you can see, it all started a really long time ago.

Today’s post was written by Jenn Whinnem, digital media manager and Health Leadership Fellow 2012.

The year was 2010. As they say in the biz, the social media telephone was ringing. Was the Connecticut Health Foundation going to pick up the call?

After thoughtful deliberation, CT Health said hello. When I was hired four years ago I felt like a kid with a bare living room floor and a new box of LEGO. How often do you get the opportunity of a blank slate and the encouragement to dream big?

Working at CT Health has been incredible for me. And yet, it’s time for me to say goodbye. I have resigned as Digital Media Manager, effective March 4, 2015, and said hello to a new adventure.

I want to thank all of you for making this a great four years of my life. You’ve inspired me and challenged me. I’m a Health Leadership Fellow ’12, meaning I am forever charged with expanding health equity in Connecticut through systems change.

I take my commitment to eliminating inequities seriously. I’ll still see you at convenings, meetings, or maybe even at the LOB.

On March 5th, I begin my new adventure as a full-time freelance writer and editor for a marketing firm based in Sweden. We’re scattered across Sweden, Spain, England, Japan, and now, the US. So I’m not leaving Connecticut, I’m just working virtually. Thank you, internet!

You’ll stay in touch, won’t you? If we haven’t already, let’s connect on LinkedIn.
