Employee Spotlight: Tawnee Helmkay

Tawnee is a Junior and has been working at the Rec since April, 2014.  She keeps herself busy as a Member Services Attendant, as well as a Fitness Assistant.  She is majoring in Health Sciences with a concentration in pre-health.

Why did you choose your major?

I knew I wanted to go into the medical field and I wanted to help people be healthy.  I would like to eventually be a PA and figured this would be a good place to start!1375326_10202158845840714_291153934_n

What is your favorite part about working here?

The people.  I love all the people here.

Communication skills.  Being able to communicate with people from different backgrounds whether they are students or alumni.  You definitely have to approach each differently.

Well, I am excited to start on the Street Team because I just got accepted!

I like to travel, eat fried pickles, and hang with my doggie.  I have a Yorkipoo.  His name is Vincenzo.

How do you stay active and healthy?

I try to workout 6 days a week and I prep my meals. They’re pretty standard.  I pack chicken, sweet potatoes, ground turkey and broccoli.

What are you looking forward to?

Graduating!! I am going to travel afterwards for a little while, heading to Europe.  I’ll be visiting Greece, Prague, and Italy.

Fun Fact: I lived in France for 2 years from the ages of 10 and 11.
