Happy New Year!

Now that 2021 is in the rearview mirror, we wanted to take a minute to reflect back on the year’s events. We asked our team to tell us the best thing that happened last year. Here’s what they had to say!

One of the best things of 2021 was going to Walt Disney World with a group of our best friends!

For me, the best thing about 2021 was friends and family. It was great to reconnect with so many loved ones after many months apart, and I was lucky enough to have this occur at multiple weddings!

Alexis, a Client Experience Manager, says…

We decided to celebrate our four-year anniversary by taking a road trip through Wyoming, including Sheridan, Cody, Yellowstone, and Jackson Hole. From antiquing and horseback riding to Old Faithful and bear sightings, we couldn’t have asked for a more scenic and relaxing anniversary.

In 2021, aside from landing one of the best jobs on Earth at Forge3, I had the pleasure of visiting “the most magical place on Earth,” Disney World. So I guess you can say 2021 was a year where dreams came true for me!

Aside from completing Magenta with the team, the best thing to happen to me in 2021 was that I was able to spend dedicated time with my family. Can’t ask for anything better than that!

Steph Brace
Best of 2021 - Rocks, Trees, Blue Sky and Clouds

Steph, a Visual Designer, says…

The best thing about 2021 was being outside! COVID made us get creative, and my family and I had so much fun visiting waterfalls, going to the zoo, seeing lakes and beaches, studying birds, and sledding.

Eric Martinez

2021 has been a journey of a year with many milestones! Two big milestones I will remember and am so thankful for are joining the Forge3 family back in March and purchasing my first home this past fall!

In 2021, I finished the first draft of my first-ever fantasy book! After years and years of starting books and never finishing them, I finally managed to do it, and I’d say that’s definitely one of the best things that happened to me that year.

Carolyn Enigk
Best of 2021 - White House With Green Front Lawn and Trees

Carolyn, a Client Experience Manager, says…

The best thing about 2021 was moving into my own place for the first time in my life! I’ve loved every part of having my own house; the decorating, the cooking, the budgeting, even the cleaning. I can’t wait to see what 2022 will have in store for me!

My best thing about 2021 is my oldest, Matt, figuring out his passion. Matt was accepted to Ithaca College’s very competitive six-year doctor of physical therapy program and also committed to play football for the Bombers! My husband and I are very proud of his accomplishments.

After three years of training, I earned my black belt in December! And to make it an extra special day, I got to share it with my 15-year-old son, who earned his 3rd-degree black belt at the same time. I couldn’t be more proud of him or myself.
