Breaking Barriers

When reporting to my Anchorage office, my new boss introduced me to one of the VPs of my company. He only had 15 minutes to meet with me, so I spoke fast and aimed to impress. Apparently, I did.

I just got off the phone with my boss. He informed me that the VP just requested my presence at a Pacific Northwest marketing meeting among the office leaders. He wants me to represent the pursuit of USCG work here in Kodiak and Alaska, at large.

Wow, lil ol me. There is no way my last boss would have given me the opportunity to meet with a veep, much less, encourage me to go to Portland and do 'em proud. I am beyond excited about this upcoming trip.

Deep water--time to swim!
