Last week my boss and Managing Editor Liz Dunshee announced on TheCorporateCounsel.net that she will soon be moving back to private law practice and spending more time with her family.
In her words:
After a lot of soul-searching, I have come to realize that I only get one chance at this life, and I don’t want to spend all of it behind a computer screen – as fun as that’s been! The moment has come for me to put more energy toward my family, friends and in-person happenings. For those reasons, I am doing something I have never done before: stepping back – or at least, sideways – from a career opportunity. I am certainly not the first to make this decision, but boy has it been a tough one!…
In a couple of months, I’ll also be returning to private practice at a firm, which will keep me closer to the issues that everyone is dealing with and make the guidance that I share here more useful.
Liz will remain involved in TheCorporateCounsel and here at PracticalESG but not to the current extent. John Jenkins will be taking over the reins quite capably. I’ve said many times that John is the writer I aspire to be, but I’ll ever achieve that. He’s also a pretty quick draw with a loaded pun.
I knew Liz before I joined CCRcorp – she was the one who brought me in and continues to mentor me about not going down technical rabbit holes (something for which I have a propensity – I think that is part of me being a “recovering auditor”). She had been tremendously supportive and even laughs at most of my dad jokes. I’ll certainly miss her.
