Unfortunately I was impacted by layoffs at Ancestry this week, and my position as a Recruiter was eliminated as part of a reduction in workforce. While it came as a shock to me, I couldn’t be more proud of the 3+ years I spent at Ancestry. I was given opportunities to grow and evolve, learning different areas of the industry, and I had the privilege to work alongside some of the very best. I am sad to leave, but I’m excited for new opportunities to come.

Unfortunately my time at Ancestry came to an end this week due to layoffs.
I feel grateful to have worked with my team in SF, my coworkers in Lehi, and everyone that I had a chance to work with from the international offices. Starting at a new company right before Covid hit was an interesting adventure and the Ancestry folks I worked with definitely helped me continue to grow and thrive over the last three years.

Ancestry has had a history of mass layoffs about every 3 years going back at least 10 years.
