I enjoy working with the residents there. It’s really great being able to serve them food, help them and just talk to them.

Why did you start working for Upshift?

I signed up in November, 2021 after hearing about it from a coworker at my previous job. I was looking to make extra money but didn’t want a job with a traditional schedule because I also do nails. The fact that I could change my schedule each week worked perfectly for me. I hadn’t heard of Upshift but this person raved about it so I decided to give it a try. I’ve only been working on Upshift since I signed up!

What do you do outside of Upshift?

When I’m not working on Upshift, I do nails which is why the flexibility really appealed to me. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, spending time with my son and traveling. I actually just got back from Cancun today. My son is a big sports fan so I take him to football and basketball games. We also like to do outdoor activities like bike riding and hiking.

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

I like to plan ahead and organize myself before shifts. Making sure you are prepared for your shift before you arrive is really important. I also like to plan the travel to make sure that I am getting there on time. Rushing to get to a shift is never fun and doesn’t put you in a good mindset to succeed. Having the location, travel tips and arrival instructions for each shift allows you to plan ahead.

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

I’ve worked at the Georgia Aquarium, Inspired Living, and a few other places. My favorite shifts have been at Inspired Living. I enjoy working with the residents there. I’ve always liked working with older people. It’s really great being able to serve them food, help them and just talk to them. It’s been a great experience and I’m so glad I decided to pick up my first shift there.
