Congratulations on your retirement, Mariana!
For nearly two decades, the words of MIR’s Senior Copywriter, Mariana Noble, have graced countless pages in our catalogs, brochures, destination guides, and reading materials, not to mention numerous stories and personal travel accounts written especially for the MIR blog. Throughout her long tenure at our Seattle office, she has been a dedicated co-worker, a thoughtful travel companion, a warm and generous mentor, and a cherished friend.
Today, with bittersweet emotions, we bid Mariana a fond farewell as she heads into new adventures in retirement.
Mariana joined MIR Corporation in 2000, starting out as an office manager before letting her creative talents shine as the company’s sole copywriter. She made it her focus to spotlight the extraordinary treasures (both cultural and natural) in each of MIR’s destinations at the crossroads of Europe and Asia — places that were once considered obscure, remote, and even controversial, but today are fast becoming some of the world’s newest travel hotspots. Thanks to her expertly crafted content, she helped shape MIR’s creative voice into what it is today, capturing our company’s passion and pioneering spirit with enthusiasm, wit, and signature style like no one else.
It’s been an honor to have Mariana as an integral part of our team. We will forever be indebted to her creativity and commitment to propelling MIR to its current position as a recognized leader in the travel industry.
Mariana will be deeply missed, but thankfully won’t be too far away from her colleagues in the MIR Seattle office — she’s looking forward to kicking up her heels and spending more time gardening and relaxing at her new home on Whidbey Island, just a short hop away from downtown Seattle.
Mariana’s words will also continue to live on in the MIR blog. Check out our blog archives, where you can read these favorite stories and more penned by our beloved wordsmith:
