It’s the Holidays! (And Peckman Search Partners’ 20th Anniversary!)

This December, I feel like I’m in some kind of quantum-physics experiment in which time has lost all meaning.

Seriously, where did 2018 go? I mean, we celebrated New Year’s and then we had some wildfires and elections, and all of a sudden it’s eggnog season again.

We sure as heck weren’t napping through it all: 2018 was gangbusters for Peckman Search Partners, which probably explains why it seemed to slide by like you-know-what through a goose.

And speaking of how time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’ into the future (the first, last, and only Steve Miller Band reference in this post, trust me) — PSP is celebrating two full decades in business.

Personally, I am stunned by this. To me, it all still feels so scrappy and new!

But seriously, my friends, we wouldn’t be here celebrating 20 years in the biz without your support, your encouragement, your referrals, and your trust. I truly cannot thank you enough.

Of course, I would be remiss if I did not also thank all the people who put the “Partners” in Peckman Search Partners — Sarah, Chris, Kory, Kristy, Mark, Julie, Jenna, Brenda and Matt. You guys are tremendous — countless thanks for all you do.

And so, I conclude with both deepest thanks and very best wishes for the holidays — to every single one of you out there. I am delighted and honored to have you in my life.


Over the holidays, a lot of people are on the lookout for charitable causes that they can support. In light of the truly frightening reports that have been coming out about the environmental, social, and economic effects of manmade climate change, I’m increasingly intrigued by groups that focus on preserving the Earth’s fragile biodiversity.

My husband and I are blessed to be living on beautiful Lake Kachess in the Cascades, and this experience has made me especially appreciative of the role of clean water in our communities and in the ecosystems on which we all depend.

Some outstanding groups that need your support include Charity: Water, Oceana, and the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (don’t laugh — he’s a serious advocate for marine conservation and other forms of species protection, and not even the receipts from Titanic would be enough to address the scope of this challenge). Of course, if you prefer a purely local cause to support, there’s the Puget Sound Restoration Fund and, for that matter, Save Lake Kachess.

Whatever you do, and wherever you give, thank you for sharing your abundance this holiday season to assist people — and places — needing your help.
