When did you start at Thrive?
End of November 2017!
What are some of the things you love about being a Thriver?
We literally have the NICEST, most supportive team that I’ve ever worked with. I THRIVE on positivity and it’s seriously a joy to finally find my kind of people who work well in a culture that is built on lifting each other up and being a team player.
If you were a chocolate bar, which would you be?
Ohhh…this ones tough because chocolate is kind of my thing. I’m a bit of a snob about it because my family has spoiled me with really rich European chocolates (drooling right now). The only one I can find at the convenient store that will suffice is Ferrero Rocher! The Choceur bars at Aldi are legit and taste like home. This is probably way more TMI than you needed, right?
Where would you go on a dream vacation?
Back to the motherland! Poland where the other half of my heart is!
What sport or athletic event do you wish you could be really good at?
I love yoga and running and hope to retire as a yoga instructor some day!
Tell us about your very first job.
McDonalds. I lasted 1 week. HAHAHA
What’s one food that you absolutely hate?
I’m not a huge meat eater any more and hate gamey meats….lamb? Liver? #pass.
