When you join the Y, you are not just joining a gym. Members will always find a supportive community full of friendly faces. And at the Morris Community YMCA, one of these friendly faces belongs to Steph Latta. Steph is a valued part of our membership team, always there to share a smile and a warm and welcoming greeting when members walk through our front door. Learn more about Steph in the Q&A below:
Q: Why do you enjoy working at the Y?
“I enjoy being here because of the people. The relationships I have with members and fellow staff are special.” I love the atmosphere. I open on a lot of mornings and the group that comes in right when we open at 5 o’clock always make my day. It’s always great to see new members come in too!”
Q: What are some of your favorite Y moments or memories?
“I love all the members who come in everyday smiling. Everyone is so friendly. The Fab 50 group in particular is great. Most of them come in well before senior fitness classes start and you get a chance to chit-chat. Most of them love pickleball too.”
Q: How has working at the Y impacted you?
“Working at the Y has made me a better person. I was never really sociable and now I’m better at communicating. I enjoy being sociable with the members.”
Q: What should someone who is thinking about joining know about the Y?
“Many people can be self-conscious about themselves when they workout and I tell them that’s one thing they don’t have to worry about when they are here. We don’t judge people, everybody supports one another, and you’ll often end up making new friends.
We are so proud to have Steph on our Y team! If you are interested in joining our staff team, you can stop by one of our Employment Open Houses this week, visit our Employment Opportunities page, or apply online today.
