Exciting news was announced at the end of last week, I am now the Lead Program Manager for the Hotmail feature team! Yay me! I’m really excited about the new challenges coming up (and a little nervous too as it’s going to be a whole new type of work). It’s going to be a ton of fun and I already know I enjoy working with the other two front door leads, Denise (business) and Omar (infrastructure). Making this whole thing a lot less frightening: I am inheriting an awesome team, In order for me to fail I would to work at it (I don’t plan on failing :)).
While I’m excited to take on this new challenge it does come with one disappointing aspect: my previous manager, Jen, has decided to take a new role up in Redmond. Her new team is gaining a tremendous resource, I’m jealous.
