Farewell to Diana

Story by Messenger staff

The Messenger said farewell to our Office Manager at the beginning of the month. Diana Ionita started with us at the beginning of 2016, as our Project Administrator and soon became an indispensable team member.

As well as organising all our office systems with an almost scary efficiency, she sold our advertising and ensured the Messenger was distributed to all 9,000 homes. She also took on the job of IT officer, eking the most out of our old, tired, machines. Not exactly your usual ‘admin’ role! Her hard work and commitment in these roles led to her promotion to Office Manager last year.

Diana and her unique sense of humour will be greatly missed by all the staff, management and volunteers at the Messenger, and we wish her every success in her ongoing career. We promise to make sure the plants she tended lovingly remain well fed and watered (but not over watered).

(We would normally include a photo at this point, but Diana hated having her picture taken, so we won’t)
