I love going back to places that value my work and show their appreciation.

Why did you start working for Upshift?

I was working at a business where multiple people had signed up with Upshift and were picking up shifts. They were really happy with how it had been going and told me that I should sign up. I decided to submit my application and onboarded in August, 2021. I’ve been working on Upshift consistently since that day.

What do you do outside of Upshift?

I have 3 sons so most of my time is spent doing different activities with them. I volunteer at their school for different after school events. We also love to spend time outdoors when the weather is nice. I love to take them fishing and we play a lot of tennis together. The flexibility that Upshift provides has been a huge blessing for my family.

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

I think focus and work ethic are really important. You need to be focused to make sure that everything gets done correctly. If you can focus on the correct details and put in the necessary effort level, you will be successful at any shift you apply to.

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

I’ve worked at so many different places since I started and really have enjoyed all of them. Some of my favorite places to work have been Blackwell Inn and the Columbus Convention Center. I love going back to places that value my work and show their appreciation. That is the most important thing to me when I’m deciding where to pick up my next shift.
