Farewell Sophie

My friends – it is with a heavy heart I write to tell you of my last day at the EDA on Wednesday, July 13th. This job has been such a gift because it has helped me make connections with so many of you, something that I will be forever grateful for. I’ll be relocating to Yakima in mid-August for an exciting career move, however, much of my freelance videography/photography business is here in Ellensburg, so I will be in town often. Please feel free to reach out to my freelance business, SW Productions, if you ever need videography/photography services for your business or personally. My cell is (262) 365-1933 and you can always reach me through email at I want to give a special thank you to Brenda DeVore, our Executive Director, Kelle Vandenberg, our Board President and Darren Reid, our Board Vice President. The three of you have made me feel so welcome and appreciated. I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for me. Lastly my friends, and this is the important part, please keep in touch! If you’re ever in Yakima, I’d love to have a meal together! Thank you all for your continued support - I hope to see you soon! With love, Sophie (+Chance)
