Big news from Team Perranta: Drew and I are moving to San Francisco!
We are excited to be taking the next step of my career in a new city. Next week I will be starting as an Account Executive at BrightEdge. BrightEdge is a leader in Search Engine Optimization, and counts Microsoft, Facebook, and thousands of other brands - large and small - amongst their clients, and I am excited to be joining their team.
While we are excited, this of course means that we will be leaving our home in DC. I grew up in the suburbs of DC, and have spent the last 7 years here. DC has been my everything - I fell in love in this town, I have made so many friends here - but having lived here all my adult life, I am looking forward to learning and experiencing a new city!
I just want to say thanks to the amazing Andy Solari for being my San Francisco guide, helping me make the transition out west. I cannot give enough thanks to Sam Osborne and all the good folks at NGP VAN - I learned so much at NGP and am excited about all the great things that will be coming out of the company in the months and years to come. I also want to thank John Marble, Zack Carroll, and so many others for your support during my time as President of the DC Young Democrats. We knocked on over 100,000 doors, and I will always, always treasure the role we played. I also want to say thanks to some old bosses - Marty Rouse, Shane Larson, and Sean Holihan - who are all brilliant politicos, from whom I learned a lot.
I am really going to miss DC, and all of my friends here, a whole lot.
So - I am not the type to throw huge parties, but there will definitely be some happy hours here and there. I leave for SF on 12/8, but am back the week of New Years. I’ll be coming back to DC as often as I can. I expect each and every one of you to visit!
