I have had the pleasure of serving as the editor for Pacific Palisades Patch for the past year and have had quite an incredible journey. So, it is a bittersweet moment to announce I will be leaving the post this evening.

A big thank you to all of you who welcomed Pali Patch into your daily lives. Many of you also welcomed me personally into your homes, businesses and allowed me to clutter your Inbox with emails and call you after your long days at work. You made me feel like I was your longtime neighbor, and I sincerely appreciate your kindness.
All the best,
