4 min read

Oh, World-wide-web,

It is with great disappointment and deep pride and just each individual experience conceivable that we desire Chelsea, our Director of Functions a fond farewell from APW.

She’s been on our crew for 5 many years. In reality, the to start with time I interviewed her I cherished her, but did not employ her for the position (she would have hated the job). But she retained pursuing up with me for the upcoming 6 months, and we even invited her to look at the (awful) inauguration of DJT at our model new offices in advance of she was a staff member. After six months, I ultimately uncovered a location for her, and she took that location and RAN with it. She went from becoming a standard assistant, to building units, and working properly, rather considerably all the things.

It was not an uncomplicated 5 yrs possibly. There ended up four unpleasant a long time of the DJT presidency, an workplace break in, some employees shake ups, and two years of a pandemic where we had to pivot the business over and over and all operate remotely. But I simply cannot envision our workforce receiving via all of individuals years without having Chelsea, and her new crew is so lucky to have her.

Further than that, on a private note, Chelsea taught me how to be a great boss, almost certainly much more than any other solitary staff ever has. I’m so happy to see what she does next, and a very little little bit heartbroken that we won’t Slack with her every day. But still… acquiring staff members, instruction them, seeing them develop and attain abilities, and then observing them depart and do fantastic issues is the pretty ideal aspect of getting operating a enterprise.

Mainly because she justifies it, a comprehensively incomplete record of Chelsea’s achievements in her five many years at APW:

  • Intended / Artwork Directed many photoshoots for APW.
  • Got sucked into modeling for a little handful of photoshoots (like the Cottonelle shoot, under, that she modeled in. The pictures ended up showcased in Advert Week!).
  • Did floral layout for a (not small) number of photoshoots and events.
  • Coordinated details and oversaw the success of loads of significant and little activities (examples: The APW 10-yr roller rink get together, The Compact Feminist Summertime Camp, and so several more).
  • Created and or refined every one book, graphic, model component, or visible you’ve witnessed on the website or social media in excess of the final 5 decades (which includes, but not confined to, Sensible Company College,, Niqeva).
  • Ran (rather basically) all the guiding-the-scenes for APW (day-to-working day office and workforce administration, undertaking management, office environment relocations, administrative duties, HR, social media, articles, and so considerably far more).

Chelsea has also been the queen of material close to APW and she is leaving us with some wonderful reads and spherical-ups. She gave us the San Francisco Metropolis Hall Elopement Information, a comprehensive tutorial to marriage bouquets (her magic formula sauce is that she was a florist for many years, and is a total pro!), her eye-opening come upon with Shonda Rhimes,  this trendy courthouse outfit roundup,  a record of summer season wedding visitor attire you should not overlook, and so quite a few a lot more.

What is upcoming for Chelsea? She’s shifting on and moving up. She’ll be getting on a new job as an Artwork Output Manager, combining her really like of design, art, and group/arranging. She receives to use energy equipment, function with her hands, participate in with crops, and be a bunch of people’s manager. Oh, and she’ll possibly maintain kicking ass, quietly, from the history of any and every single organization she will come in speak to with. It is just who she is.
