Tell us a bit about yourself. 

Some call me “Doctor”, “‘Doc”, “Doctor R”, “Aunt Donna” or “Donna” of course! I hold advanced degrees and work full-time while accessing Upshift work as well. I enjoy physical fitness, weight-lifting, the outdoors, reading, and self-improvement through classes and other learning opportunities. I have two children in college, they are my absolute joy in life!

How has it been working on Upshift?

The companies are welcoming, the Upshift staff is responsive, and working with other “Upshifters” on job sites has been a positive experience. Through Upshift, I’ve worked in a variety of industries I would not have accessed otherwise. It has allowed me to learn about different employers’ businesses and their operations and meet many people. I also enjoy returning to work for some of my favorite companies. Additionally, my niece joined Upshift and we sometimes work together which has been a super benefit!

What do you like most about Upshift?

The Upshift app on my phone provides easy access and review of work opportunities, scheduling work, and communicating to Upshift staff. I also highly appreciate the flexibility working for Upshift offers me, I can see and apply to shifts up to a month in advance and around my busy schedule.
