Best Wishes to Billie!

1017385_10202531777402271_1041362148_nWe want to wish Billie all the best as she moves with her husband and two sons back to Oklahoma. We hope you make so many memories with the grandparents, aunts and uncles you’ll be close to. We will miss you terribly, but you have forever left your mark on Myers PR! Here are a few memories from friends who will miss you:

 

Group photo of Myers PR TeamMarion Myers: I must be one of the luckiest (or the smartest) business owners around. We have been able to build a team of first class, talented employees who complement each other’s skills and work together like a well-oiled machine. We are also very lucky that the people who come to work at Myers PR tend to stay a long, long time. We have been extremely fortunate to have had Billie for nearly 10 years – amazing!

While I wish her and her family all the best that life can offer- in a quieter place, at a slower pace – I will miss her. I will miss her crazy energy, her ability to argue both sides of an issue (simultaneously), her happy voice that can carry to the rafters, and her stubborn adherence to “doing the right thing”.  She inspired the rest of the team with her enthusiasm. She was patient and thorough in her mentorship of newer members of the team. She grew professionally and matured personally so much in those years….. I am very proud that she chose to spend that time with us.

Good luck Billie!

IceSkating March 2011 MyersPRDavid Cavalieri : My goodness, it has been an absolute joy working alongside Billie! From the day I was hired, she has been an amazing mentor and helped me to grow in so many ways. We shared plenty of jokes (which I will surely miss!) but, we were a team hand-in-hand. Because of Billie, I have grown tremendously! It’s difficult to see her go, but I wish her, her husband, and her two boys the absolute best back in Oklahoma. Enjoy your family — you only get to live it once! 🙂 I just ask her to remember that her arm won’t be helpful with holding the mattress down on the car roof and if she’s ever in a race to know that it’s all the same oat bag!

With all the hugs in the world – David Cavalieri

Arja Sahramaa:  Oklahoma City, the winds of change are blowing your way! Billie is a whirlwind of energy and accomplishment, with the most logical mind I’ve ever experienced. She has more patience when teaching a task than anyone else I’ve ever known. She can phrase even the most awkward message in a way that the recipient becomes a new friend. Her prowess with Excel is legendary (just remembered we never got to the series of next-level tutorials). Even with all these skills and more, the absolute best thing about Billie is her heart. She sees, she listens, and she cares. She is selfless and loyal, a true friend, and one I hope I will have for the rest of my life.

Thank you for everything you are, dear Billie; bon voyage! Until we meet again.

Birthday Hat Women June15 2010Carol Nahorniak: More than 9 years ago, I had the pleasure of Billie coming into my life. The following may read more like a recommendation letter, but the point is, Billie’s lovable and admirable strengths have made her so wonderful to work with. Her intense sense of responsibility, attention to detail, accuracy, and drive are woven into her character. I’ll always have her in mind as I work – especially when it comes to the Oxford comma. And this: :). Her perfectionism and style in development of the Reston Home Tour book is a highlight of our work together – she stepped right up to volunteer her skills for that project, and went beyond expectations. She’s so remarkable in so many ways, and I’m already missing her – she’s certainly got a piece of my heart.

I also hope you discover all those hobbies that are trapped inside you 🙂  Thank you for all the help, guidance and general positive feelings you’ve given during my 2 years at MPR.  Thank you for always looking after people’s needs even if they didn’t’ know they had them.  You are one of the kindest, level-headed people I know and you had me at yoga. Namaste.

Brandy: While it’s so hard to say goodbye I’m so happy that Billie has found a new pace of life and able to see more of her family in her home town. Billie was not only a fantastic source of information in the office but also gave wonderful life advice which I will treasure. I’ll miss you Billie!

image002Liz Bush: Oh my dear Billie! What can I say? I am going to miss the pants off you! There is a reason that no one wants to let you go (both personally and professionally) and the answer is that you are simply, wonderfully, you. There are so many words…so I’ll save the masses the time – here’s a random sample just for you:

Flip flops – only ever flip flops!

The beach

Getting to the beach (half the fun!)

Bloody Mary’s – don’t forget the Zing Zang

WTF? (diaper)

Patio Sangria

Taylor the Latte Boy

Scarves…so many more to come 😀

“I was told I can’t take anything else”

10 minutes, 10 months, 10 years

“why are you INSIDE?”

CHEESE

Whose car are we taking? (nevermind, dumb question)

“If you have to ask if you can post something…”

Crazy

Crazy (different meaning)

Crazy (another different meaning)

They will forget what you said, they will never forget how you made them feel.

Hugs  🙂
