Why did you start working for Upshift?

I heard about Upshift online and onboarded in July of 2021. I had left my job to pursue some courses before starting my own business. Upshift allowed me to make extra money while I was taking these courses and getting my business off the ground. My schedule was going to change every week and Upshift allowed me to work flexibly around that. It was the perfect fit for me!

What do you do outside of Upshift?

Starting my own freelance business is keeping me really busy these days. When I’m not working, I like to draw and paint. I do a lot of pencil drawings and watercolor pieces. I’ve been doing art my whole life and it’s one of my passions.

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

I would recommend being positive and keeping an open mind. I’ve found several shifts that I really enjoy that I wouldn’t have if I hadn’t kept an open mind before applying. Having a positive attitude is really important before you arrive for your shifts. The people you are working with will appreciate it and it puts you in a position mentally to be successful regardless of what the shift is.

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

I worked quite a few shifts at Comprehensive Logistics and Discount Fashion Warehouse. I’ve worked mostly light industrial shifts but have also picked up a few shifts at Frisch’s and Sharonville Convention Center. I liked Discount Fashion Warehouse a lot because of how great the people are there. They make it really fun to come to work.
