Why did you start working for Upshift?

I was actually working at a facility in July, 2021 with a group of Upshifters. They explained how it worked and it sounded perfect for me. At the time, I was looking to make a change but wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to do next. Upshift allowed me the flexibility to try out a few different things until I found something I liked without the commitment of most jobs.

What do you do outside of Upshift?

My favorite things to do are backpacking and hiking. We’re actually getting ready for a 4 day hiking trip in Indiana. Normally, we go for 3-4 days and camp out. Everything goes in my backpack and we just stay out in the woods the whole time. My goal is to hike the Appalachian Trail in the future now that my youngest daughter has graduated. It has been high on the bucket list for awhile.

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

You really need to make sure that you can attend a shift 100% before confirming it. We are making a commitment when we confirm a shift and the business is counting on us being there. When we are accepted for a shift, we have an opportunity to review the shift details again before confirming it. I always make sure to read through the shift details thoroughly to make sure I understand all the requirements for the shift before confirming it.

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

I’ve really enjoyed working at Tente Casters and Holiday Inn Eastgate. At Tente Casters, we’ve been making wheels and it’s really busy so the days go by really fast. Holiday Inn Eastgate is where I’ve been working most of my shifts. I have experience in that industry and can fill a number of different roles for them. The staff there are like family and that’s what keeps me coming back.
