The Pels

Frosting Cupcakes and Rolling Buns

by Ann Shanks Etter

Working as a Pel gave me an opportunity to use skills I don’t normally get to exercise in my career. I was fortunate to be able to take some time off from being a CPA to go work at Star.

I learned new skills, how to roll buns and frost cupcakes, among them. I had the opportunity to be supervised after decades of supervising others. It gave me valuable insight into working with a younger generation and will inform some of my business decisions going forward. And all in a gorgeous setting.

I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of a team, learning new skills, exercising skills I hadn’t used in ages, and easily meeting my step goals every day. I highly recommend Pel-ing, both for sheer fun and for personal growth and helpful knowledge. It helps Star, too!
