While working at UnityPoint I was responsible for Biometric screenings and consultations which included: blood pressure, body composition, blood profiles, waist circumference and individual consultations. I was also responsible for creating two regional health events for their OnPoint system. I created stall mates that contain all different types of wellness for each month and I updated bulletin boards. I also was tasked with creating a Lunch and Learn presentation, aggregate report and marketing project.


I was able to accomplish many things but the one task that was most beneficial was that I made an aggregate report for a company to help guide them in making more beneficial changes in their day to day life.

What advice would you give?

Don't take things for granted. Through my experience dealing with the pandemic you never know when things will change, so utilize your time wisely, and give it your all.
