I wanted to quickly share some news with my readers – On February 20, I was asked to meet with my Pastor at the parish where I work and was told that day I was being laid off by the parish due to budget constraints. After nearly 6 1/2 years, my time at the parish is coming to a close on March 31. It was shocking news yet somehow I had a small feeling it was eventually going to happen at some point. I am still at the parish till the end of this month to assist with some transition of my current duties.
I am no longer seeking church positions since I really need to make a living wage that will support our growing family. It has been a blessing to work for the Catholic Church these past 20 years, however, it is no longer feasible for me to do so now that I have a family. We have debt that we are also trying to pay off. If we had didn’t have debt, then I could probably work for the Church.
Since I have a Masters in Education and years of teaching/training experience, I am seeking positions such as an instructional design specialist, training specialist, strategic planning manager, education specialist, training coordinator, and leadership development trainer. I have applied to quite a few companies here in Phoenix, but have yet to attain an interview. I’ve reached out to a few recruiters and hope that they can find something for me. Locally, we have a great community and support system, we have family here in town, and we live in a great town.
I ask you simply to pray that I find a new position quickly. If you live here in Phoenix and know of a position or something I could be qualified to do, please contact me.
I hope that you enjoy my writings on this blog and will continue to support and follow me during this transition. Thank you.
