Job change

This is the last time I am making a job change- at least for several years (hopefully!).

My last day at Maxim will be February 1st. I will be off the week of February 4th, and start with Capital City Nurses on February 11th.

This is the company that my Mom worked for when she and Dad got divorced. Her lifelong friend, Sue Rodgers, owns it, and Sue’s son Brian is now running a lot of the operations. I’ll be a manager that will work in the Baltimore office (in White Marsh), 3 days a week and in the Columbia office (by Princeton Sports) 2 days a week. They do private duty nursing and have contracts with the VA in Baltimore and the Office on Aging.

It was a very hard decision to leave Maxim, but I think that CCN will be a better fit for me in the long run. Eventually I should be able to be in the Columbia office 2 ½ or 3 days a week, and will be a Regional Manager as we hire coordinators in both the WM and Columbia offices. They will open more offices as well, and I may be able to help train new employees and get the new offices up and running.

I’m very excited for my new venture. This is a company where the “big bosses” know me. My direct supervisor (another Maureen – I’m taking that as a very good sign!) knows Mom, and I know I will feel comfortable there. I think it’s a great opportunity, and will offer the flexibility that I know I’ll need as Kyra gets older and enters (gasp!) middle school, etc.
