Today is my last day of work before I disappear for a while. I’m pregnant – Joel and I are expecting our first baby on the 23rd December. For the last 8 months, I have been growing another human being. This is a final goodbye (for now) post. I wish you all a good year – and can’t wait to see how the company and things change in a years time when I will be back!
It has been quite a journey. But now I can safely say I am super excited to be leaving for maternity leave. Over the past 4 1/2 years, I have been working with Active Minds and seeing the company grow from a small space in a tiny room to a 2-floor studio where the team has doubled. It’s an exciting place to be, and it’s fascinating to be part of.
