Why did you start working for Upshift?  

I heard about it through Facebook and at the time I was working for a grocery delivery app. I had done that for a few years but it wasn’t as good as when I started so I was looking for something new. The fact that you could work at a variety of places really appealed to me because I like trying new things. I was also looking for something that offered more stability. Upshift sounded perfect for me!

What do you do outside of work?

I love to do crafts like sewing curtains and scrapbooking. Gardening is another passion of mine. One of my favorite things to do is make dandelion jelly. I actually pick the dandelions myself, clean them, cook them and make the jelly. I make a big batch every couple of years and it’s a lot of fun.

What has been your favorite company to work with?

My two favorite places to work have been at Castellini and Doscher’s. I definitely got my exercise at Castellini which was great. I really love Doscher’s because of how comfortable I feel there. It’s really fun to make the candy canes and all the people I’ve met there are really sweet. Doscher’s has definitely been my favorite place to work!

After working on various shifts through Upshift, I found a place where I love to work and where I feel comfortable and happy!

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters?

There’s a lot of fascinating shifts on the platform so make sure to try them out. If you find a place that you like to work then you can keep going back there. The variety of shifts is really a huge plus and everyone should take advantage of it. Hopefully, you find somewhere that you love to work like I did with Doscher’s!
