Closing a Chapter and Starting a New One

It is never easy or clean-cut when are closing a chapter of your life and starting a new one.

There are a lot of emotions swirling around for me last week as a 3-year chapter of my life closes with my last day at Accolade, Inc. Back in 2020, I started as the Marketing Intern with my sole focus being on organic social for Accolade. I quickly joined full-time as their woman to run organic social media and just kept running with it. I have been doing social media for almost 6 years now as my career and my job at Accolade only help enhance and learn more about the industry.

I’ve had the opportunity to build and lead Accolade’s social media efforts through some memorable experiences from IPO to on-the-ground at HLTH, Evolve, and other major healthcare conferences to webinars and big launches, campaigns, and rebrands. Whenever there was a major launch or big career achievement, my incredible boss, Megan Torres and I always took a moment to say, “Yes we just crossed that off the career bucket list.” I have gotten to travel to places I have never been before and learn from people that are incredibly brilliant. I don’t take a single second for granted.

Why am I leaving? No matter how much you love a place and really don’t want to leave, you know when it is time to start looking for other opportunities. There were a lot of changes that had taken place and I knew it was time for me to look for my next opportunity. It’s been so great getting to know and learn from each person and I have truly enjoyed my time at Accolade. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to collaborate with on a daily basis. My heart hurts that I don’t get to see my group of people that I worked so closely with every day anymore.

This chapter of my life and career has been incredible and I have learned so much. I can’t even put it into words but I am incredibly excited to start this next chapter in a completely different and new industry.

With one chapter closing, another is starting. On to the next adventure! As always, thank y’all for stopping by and reading. I will see y’all back here next time.

Love, Dani
