Today I am posting to share a bit of news regarding one of our most treasured employees, Jennifer Ellefson.
After much thought and consideration, Jennifer has opted to leave her position with us as Customer Communications Director. She has had some amazing opportunities arise in a different career field which she has opted to take advantage of. After ten years in the paper crafting industry as a whole, four years of that with Papertrey, she is moving back towards her original career and some dreams she has within that. I am certain that with her talent & dedication, she will be able to achieve everything she desires and more!
Saying something like "we are so sorry to see her go" does not even begin to express the amount of emotion that the team feels as a whole. Jennifer was our anchor, her organizational skills were amazing and she kept us all on track. She was not only a dedicated employee, but she was a dear friend to every one of us and always with a smile and a virtual hug. She is an extraordinary woman who I have been honored to work beside these last few years and I will forever be grateful for all she has done for both me personally and the entire company. It is not very often that one gets the opportunity to work with someone so full of grace, intellect, empathy, creativity, kindness and dedication all in one package. I can honestly say that Jennifer has been my true north, my guide, my confidante for years and I know I will never cross paths with someone like her again. She is an amazing person inside & out and anyone who has the opportunity to meet her would feel the very same way.
While you may not see Jennifer's face on the forum any more, members of our design team are taking on more presence within the forum and helping to facilitate some of Jennifer's past duties there. This transition has already begun to take place and it will continue on into the future.
I hope you will join me in wishing Jennifer a wonderful journey. I hope that every goal, every dream she has for her future in her new career will be achieved and fill her with joy & happiness that is so well deserved. Cheers, Jenn! We will all miss you more than you will ever, ever know!
