Joining BIG has had me excited ever since it was decided. It puts a smile on my face just thinking about it. Becoming a part of a well established organization like this, and a part of the BIG Family really means a lot. After having some time where you’re not certain of what the future would hold, it is definitely a feeling of pure joy now knowing this is my new home. I hope and believe I can bring the final bits and pieces to take this project to the next level. A huge thank you to BIG for making this happen and to everyone who wrote to me in the uncertain times. #GOBIG
