EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT: JESSICA CARBONE
At Cheshire Fitness Zone (CFZ) our goal is to help children and adolescents of all ages feel confident in growing their abilities through therapeutic programs that strengthen and teach new skills for use in everyday life.
Our monthly, “Employee Spotlight Series,” offers a chance to meet members of the team and learn about their experience working with children.
For this month’s spotlight, we spoke to Jessica Carbone, PTA. Jess has been a member of the team since 2008.
Can you describe what a typical day working at CFZ is like?
“I would say working at Cheshire Fitness Zone is very active because we are constantly on the go, the kids are on the go, we are constantly moving, were on and off the floor, we go into schools so were driving around, place to place so I would say, very active.”
How did you know you wanted to work with kids?
“I actually didn’t know I wanted to work with kids. I have been working with Craig for 10 years. My first 2 years, I was doing front desk things, helping with babysitting, and planning birthday parties and it kind of just stuck, once I finished school and I started working full time. I really can’t imagine working anywhere else.”
What is your favorite part of your job?
“My favorite part of working at Cheshire Fitness Zone is probably, well the kids, obviously, but also the people I work with, which is really important. Its nice to come in and be excited to see everybody and just talk. We are always bouncing ideas off of each other and that, to me, is really fun.”
What are 3 words that best describe you and why?
“3 words that best describe me…I would probably choose friendly; I just think that helps working with people, you need to be approachable and be able to talk to people. I think I’m compassionate, I also think that benefits me working in physical therapy in general, especially with kids and probably goofy!”
What is something you have on your wish list to achieve over the next 10 years?
“Something I would like to achieve over the next 10 years would be, well work related, I would love to just stay involved with Cheshire Fitness Zone as much as possible and see us get into the community a little bit more, run a couple more programs. I would love to be able to learn Spanish and be able to speak it fluently, which would also help me working with different people from different places and definitely expand the family, humans and goats!”
