Why Tena Loves Working for the Y

November 19, 2018

If you’re an early morning exerciser, Tena’s smiling face is likely the first one you see. “They call me ‘Nosy’ because I know almost everyone’s names,” she laughs.

For Tena, working at the Y goes far beyond scanning you in; it’s about forming genuine connections with others. “I think you should know something about every member that comes in here. Some people need that little extra ‘Hey, how are you doing?’ or ‘What’s going on today?’

"It's more than a job"

Before Tena joined the Brentwood Y staff eight years ago, she and her family were new-to-town members in search of community. “This was like a savior for me,” she says. A boot camp regular, Tena became fast friends with the staff, which led to a part-time job in Y-Play and then in membership.

Now, Tena would say she’s here all the time—whether working out on Sundays with her husband and two sons, or clocking in at the crack of dawn to make members feel welcome the minute they walk through the door.

“I think it’s more than a job…it becomes your second home, your second family. It’s a great place to be.”
