A Final Farewell to Fizz Nation

After just under three years, a slew of radio content, and 221 articles, my time at OrangeFizz has come to an end. When I first joined the Fizz team in April 2021, I didn’t foresee what a consistent role it would come to form in my professional development and schedule for years to come. The Fizz reinvigorated my passion for writing and offered me brief respite from some busy, hectic periods of life. At the end of my line on the site, I look back at my Fizz career and consider it a truly invaluable experience.

It’s my hope that readers and Fizz fans over the years have enjoyed our content. The Fizz staffers of tomorrow are talented more than capable of stepping in to replace those who are moving on this year. All that’s left to do now is a bit of reminiscing as I step aside.
