“I started working here in January. I’m kind of retired and enjoy meeting and talking to people. I like to stay active. Prior to COVID-19, I worked for the Summit Area Y for three years. But I’ve been part of the Y community for longer. My younger daughter swam at the Westfield Y and participated in camp here as a child, and my older daughter took gymnastics classes here years back. For the last 20 years, I’ve been in customer service and also worked as a kindergarten and preschool teacher. When I decided to go back to work now, I wanted something for me. I like meeting a variety of people and there is always something to do. It’s not a boring job. You also have flexibility working here, and as a Y employee, receive a Y membership and can work out if you want. I’m looking forward to getting to know more people and helping out where needed.”
