A college hockey player and international business major, Jake always saw himself in the finance world, as well as involved in fitness — he just never thought he’d be able to combine the two. Now, in addition to asset management at Norway Savings, Jake creates health and fitness videos with his coworkers to help them lead healthier lives — and get in a good laugh!
“I played four years of college hockey,” he said, “but when I got out of college I was faced with working out on my own and that was tough! That’s when I got into Crossfit and I was just blown away by the level of fitness of everyone there. I was a pretty elite athlete most of my life and these people were kicking my butt!”
Fortunately, Crossfit came naturally to Jake, and he is now 10th in the state and even has a number of corporate sponsors. A member of the Norway Savings wellness committee, Jake utilizes his fitness knowledge both in and out of the gym. He’s currently coaching, as well as working with a coworker on a series of health and wellness videos for Norway employees.
“I mean honestly it’s the culture here at Norway that makes it stand out,” Jake says. “It’s so different from everywhere else. There are so many amazing people that work here and so many ways to get involved outside of just your job. People get together on the weekends and there’s always some event with groups going. We do a really good job of connecting people’s hobbies and interests to their work. Everybody is so passionate about what they do.”
