never a straight line (reprise)

Over the last six months or so, I have often wondered what I was thinking when I chose the title for my blog. I even considered changing it – to something clever, perhaps. What pertinence does the phrase “never a straight line” have to my life?

Turns out, quite a lot.




Come the middle of September, I will be moving to San Francisco to start a new job (details to come!). The decision to leave my previous job was incredibly difficult, especially after working with such talented, passionate people on a fantastic product. I spoke with family and friends before deciding, and even had long conversations with Jager about it (he growled a few times, but had no other advice to give). Ultimately, I made the decision to follow this new opportunity.

So my line is changing directions, yet again.

Before I completely change course, I have about a month and a half to reset. I’ll be traveling around the country to visit family and friends, starting in Philadelphia! Keep an eye out for my next entry, which will detail all the projects that I plan to tackle during my time off.

  1. Julia,

    It was such a pleasure and honor to work with you at DocuSign - thank you for being a fun, thought-provoking colleague. I can't wait to see you in Seattle or San Francisco, where ever our paths shall overlap!


  2. I hope you remember us poor unfortunate souls in Seattle after you've become rich and famous.

  3. Well I look forward to seeing and learning more about your next step in your career and journey! Congrads!
