We’ve been talking forever, it seems, about launching a blog here at RMHC Austin, and we have finally done it! I’m Jan, not to be confused with the other glasses and scarf-wearing brunette on the “Meet the Cast” page (see tab above). I’m the Communications Manager. I was feeling a bit like a failure because it has taken us so long to launch this thing, but now I’m really glad we have waited because one of my amazing interns, Amber Fricke, has led us into this launch in a much better way than I would have – complete with a really doable schedule.
A number of our staff members will be posting on a rotating basis. If my post bores you, please stay tuned because Ann, Derrick, Kent, Jane, Missy, Danny, Beverly and Claire are soon to follow!
We’ll be posting each Monday and Thursday, giving you a fresh, personal, inside look at what is going on around here and how it impacts our mission.
My life at the House these days is filled with interns! I mentioned Amber and her stellar work on our blog. We’ve also got Meagan McCowen working hard on some press releases as well as the Bandana Ball PowerPoint presentation, and Guillermo Jimenez working with Kent and me on our Bandana Ball video.
You can see some of Guillermo’s work from last semester on our YouTube page. PLUS I already have an intern lined up for summer – Crystal Porter. I went from zero to lots of interns in a very short time, and I have to say I like this state of affairs!
And now a family is here to check in, so since Derrick and Jane are both out of the office for a bit, I’ll be checking them in. It is, after all, all about the families.
I’ll see you next time!
