Hometown: Decorah, IA. 

How long have you worked for us?: Since August of 2017 - 1.5. years

What have you learned from working here?: SO MUCH! I am so fortunate to have the BEST co-workers and boss. The leadership team (Storm, Fic, Bruce, and Drew) is so supportive and knowledgeable. I learn so much just from watching and listening to what they are doing and saying. Angela, my boss, has taught me a lot about how to lead by doing and delegating.

What do you like to do in your spare time?: Read, play with my dog, hang out with friends, workout, and spend time outside

What is one thing you wish everyone knew about working in your position?: Personal training is more than just lifting heavy things!

Do you have any plans after graduation?: Get a big corporate job outside of the Midwest-ideally outside the US-work for a few years and then move back

If you could eat any food every day for the rest of your life without any health consequences, what would it be?: CHEESECAKE
