SpoFit would like to congratulate Jennifer Tunning on being SpoFit’s 1st lifeguard of the month for October!
As the pool season comes to a close, Friday, November 21st 2014, you will start seeing more of Jennifer and other aquatic team members inside. We thought t this would be a great way for you to get to know them a little bit better.
Jennifer is a junior at Arizona State University pursuing two Bachelor degrees, one in Social Work and the other in Family and Human Development. She eventually wants to go on to graduate with a Masters in Social Work in 2017. Jennifer is engaged to the “most awesome” man on the planet with wedding bells ringing March 2016. In her free time, Jennifer enjoys collecting vinyl records, cooking and everything crafty! Since May Jennifer has been lifeguarding, teaching swim lessons and assisting with aquatic classes. Jennifer stated that she originally thought that lifeguarding at SpoFit would be just another lifeguarding job, but the beautiful facility and spirits of the people she works with every day have made her fall in love with coming to work. She goes on to say that she possess a strong passion for working with persons with disabilities and seeing their amazing progress, perseverance and happiness they display has only furthered her assurance that this is who she wants to assist for the rest of her life.
One thing Jennifer has learned while lifeguarding at SpoFit is that going the extra mile is always worth the effort. The adjustments, considerations, knowledge and extra patience we provide can make a world of difference to all those we encounter. The last thing Jennifer was asked was to tell us her favorite aspect of SpoFit? “My favorite thing about Spofit is by far the people here, staff and members. Everybody loves their job and all the members are happy to be here; there’s a contagious sense of compassion and joy around everything we do and I’m so lucky to be a part of it.”
Jennifer, thank you for all your hard work, dedication and keeping the members of SpoFit safe out at the pool. If you are out at the pool this month and see Jennifer’s contagious smile, please tell her thank you for all she does!
