Dear Madam Secretary –

It is with mixed emotions that I have made the difficult decision to resign from

office, effective immediately. It has been the honor of a lifetime to serve the

residents of the 36th district and the great state of Connecticut. However, due to

personal circumstances and ongoing divorce litigation, I cannot continue to

dedicate myself to this job in the way that it deserves. I will miss being a part of

Dear Brett,

It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my resignation from my role at the University of Urbandale. My last day is December 31, 2021.

I’d like to thank you for the all the mentorship and guidance you’ve given me during my time here. I feel like I was really able to grow as a professional and as a person in this position. While it saddens me to go, I’m happy to know that I’ve gained lifelong friends from my role. The team here is really remarkable, and I’m sad to leave such an incredible group of people.

I plan to turn in my university computer, my office key and my speaker before leaving on the 31st. I have already called the financial services office about canceling my purchasing card and am transferring recurring charges to Makenna’s card number.

I plan to come back and visit as much as I can. It truly has been a pleasure working with everyone. Please keep in touch.

Thank you again for the opportunity,
