RAISE Employee of the Month

Isabelle has been an Employee of the JCC Fitness Center since October 2018 and recently, an appreciated member of the JCC office staff.

At the fitness center, Isabelle works to keep the gym equipment sparkling clean and sanitized and the towels washed, dried, folded and restocked for clients. She has a special bond with Tara Harris, the Sports, Fitness, and Aquatics Director.

In the JCC office, Isabelle has started scanning boxes of documents so that previous files can now be stored electronically. This eliminates the need to keep years of paper records.

When Isabelle began working with RAISE, she was a shy and quiet young lady. It has been a pleasure to watch her become a hard working, competent, and self assured RAISE Employee. Isabelle is willing to do any task asked of her without hesitation.

Isabelle is an active participant at Lunch and Learn. She asks insightful questions, participates in conversations, and is always part of our group activities.

We are fortunate to have Isabelle on the RAISE team!
