At Elevations, we have an amazing team of creative, ambitious and inspiring colleagues. This month, we’re featuring a co-worker who loves the great outdoors in our Employee Spotlight.
Michael spends his Saturday mornings differently than many of us. He wakes up before sunrise and bikes more than 40 miles from Boulder to the Wild Basin Trailhead in Rocky Mountain National Park. Upon arrival, he jumps into a freezing cold stream and then immediately runs up to Ouzel Lake (another 5 miles in and 1500 feet of elevation change). Once at the lake, he enjoys the scenery, the beauty of the lake, and sometimes a catnap in the pinecones—so nothing can sneak up on him. And then it’s time to reverse the route for his return trip home.
Michael moved to Colorado from Florida almost two years ago, and on one of his first hikes in our great state, he noticed that Elevations Credit Union sponsored the trail he was on. He decided to open an account at Elevations. A few weeks later, he had a job at the credit union, and he’s now part of our facilities team.
Of working at Elevations, Michael says, “I am empowered to do my job. The teamwork here is unreal. We have such a great culture that I feel like I am working with family and friends. What we do every day matters, no matter what our role is.
“I like supporting a company that supports my community. I wear my Elevations shirt in town, and people recognize it.”
