Why did you start working for Upshift?

I joined in July after hearing about it from a friend and his sister. They really enjoyed working on the app and recommended that I try it as well. I’ve always had a second extra money job. My previous second job was working at an event venue for concerts but that ended because of the pandemic. This was perfect for me because I could decide when and where I wanted to work. Upshift allows me to try new things and meet new people which is great!

What do you do outside of Upshift?

I like gardening and landscaping in my free time. I do a lot of traveling locally to different historical homes and other sites. I went to England 3 years ago and have wanted to go back to Europe ever since. The next trip I’m planning is to Germany which I’m really excited about. I’m saving my Upshift money for our next trip!
