welcome to new mexico

It's amazing how quickly life can change. Just over two weeks ago I accepted a temp position at the University of New Mexico so I could relocate to Albuquerque where Dale and I will make our home together. It was hard to leave my job at the library but I welcomed the opportunity to live in the same city as my fiancé as we plan our wedding and hoped relocating would help me land a permanent position somewhere.

I was set to start my temp position this coming Monday but feel fortunate to report that my circumstances have changed. Thanks to the help of an amazing recruiter and a whirlwind day of interviews, today I was offered a full-time position at the University of New Mexico. In a week I will start my new job as the Assistant to the Director of Safety & Risk Services.

My heart is very full. I feel blessed to have landed a permanent position so quickly upon arriving in New Mexico. Not only will this new role provide me with unique opportunities to employ my various skills in a work environment I enjoy, it will also provide me with a competitive salary, which will help me on my quest to become debt-free.

Finding a new job in Albuquerque has tried my patience and confidence these past few months. I'm grateful for the love and support my sweet fiancĂ©, family, and friends have provided me throughout this process. They have buoyed me up during my times of doubt and frustration. I'm also grateful for prayer and the power of the priesthood. All of these wonderful new changes and blessings would not have been possible without them. 

I'm excited to experience all the Land of Enchantment has in store. Welcome to my new life in New Mexico!
