Voyageur Crew Profiles- Rachel & Alex

I don’t normally combine employees for their crew profiles but since Alex and Rachel came to us as a pair I thought it would be OK. Rachel is a friend of Cassidy who has been at Voyageur since last November so she came with high recommendations.

Rachel is from Eau Claire, Wisconsin and is not attending school at this time. On my employee questionnaire I ask the questions, school currently attending and what year are you in? Rachel had a clever answer and replied that she had attended UMD and her current year is the year of when she doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life.  I didn’t tell her that I rarely know what I want to do with my life or that I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.  She at least knows she might like to be a coffee shop owner someday or design magazine or album covers. Do they still make albums?

Rachel spends a lot of time at Voyageur making things look nicer. She has done the majority of the gardening, weeding and planting of flowers and she’s made a bunch of neat signs. When she’s not working she likes hiking and listening to music. The lake Rachel wants to visit most is Lake of the Clouds and her favorite piece of camping gear is her purple Spork. She is looking forward to exploring the wilderness, more paddle boarding, seeing the northern lights and watching the leaves change colors this fall.

Alex is from Apple Valley and is currently in his 26th year! Not of school but of life I’m guessing. When he grows up he wants to be an older version of his self.  Another clever answer that should be easily accomplished.

Alex spends his time at Voyageur transporting guests by tow boat and/or by vehicle. He also works on projects, cleans and keeps everything lighthearted.  He is looking forward to learning more about the area and visiting Grandpa or Meditation Lake. His favorite piece of camping equipment is his Eagle’s Nest Hammock.

We’re looking forward to having both of them around throughout the rest of the summer.
