To help you get to know us a little better, we have decided to start an employee spotlight to highlight some of our team members:
Front Desk Greeter
How long have you been with the Y?
Just over 10 years
What's your favorite thing about working for the Y?
There are so many reasons why I love my job. If I could pick only one thing, it’s the enjoyment I get socializing with the Y members. I love seeing their happy faces
What's your Y story?
I needed a place to fit in and to meet people, so I joined the Y. I met a nice person on my first day at the Y, who became a friend - and then continued to meet more and more nice members who were fun to interact with. When I moved to Wilmington, I didn’t have any friends. I started taking my mom’s (Dalia Nir) exercise class. Soon after, Dick Jones (the Y CEO) recommended I volunteer greeting at the front desk. Since I was already working part time, I was a bit reluctant, but I gave it a try in April of 2007. Well, almost a year later, and lucky for me, a front desk greeter position was opened. Long story short, I was hired and began working. My first day - - and I still remember it clearly- - was Wednesday, March 26th 2008. The rest is history...
What would I like members to know about you?
In my spare time I enjoy cross training exercise, reading, writing, spending time with my family, acting (I am part of an acting troupe for people with special needs), comedy and performing stand-up comedy at the Dead Crow for open-mic, I am a tv and movie connoisseur, I enjoy crossword puzzles, and pet sitting.
