Tell us a bit about yourself. 

I am a mom of four sons. I have three in college and one in middle school. Before Upshift, I worked in the food industry for a while where I mostly specialized in cooking vegan foods. 

How has it been working on Upshift?

Upshift has been great! I really enjoy working for Legrand North America. Management there has been friendly and they make sure you know what you’re doing before you begin. Everyone works as a team to get stuff done and is always willing to help out.

What do you like most about Upshift?

The flexibility and the freedom to pick my own shifts and work when I want. Upshift also gives me the opportunity to work in different industries and develop new skills. Upshift is a great app and I am glad I found it!
