Staff Member Spotlight

Brittany & Christian Rollins

For this month’s Staff Spotlight, we’re featuring a sibling duo familiar to many members at the Bear Levin Studer Branch – Brittany and Christian Rollins. Just two years apart, they are good friends and support each other fiercely.

What is your role at the Y?

Brittany: Welcome Center Staff and occasionally a sub in KidZone.

Christian: Welcome Center Staff and Wellness Staff.

What’s the best part of your job?

Brittany: The members! They are all my friends, and those who aren’t will be soon. I look forward to seeing them every day.

Christian: The people, 100%. I enjoy interacting with a broad range of people, and that’s what the Y offers.

What’s one new skill have you learned while working at the Y?

Brittany: I’ve learned how to be assertive. I’ve also learned to take initiative when I see something that needs to be done, whether it’s making copies or jumping into KidZone to help.

Christian: I’ve learned confidence – in my answers, in standing my ground, in not being afraid of confrontation – skills that will help me in the rest of my life.

(p.s. Both gave a shout out to Wendy Levesque, a fellow team member who has been a strong role model and supported them in their professional development.)

What’s one thing about your brother/sister that people probably don’t know?

Brittany: Christian will soon graduate with his bachelor’s degree in psychology. He’s very modest and humble about that.

Christian: My favorite thing about Brittany is how crazy she is. She’s into spiritual passions, and it’s fun to listen to her share those things.

If you were stranded on a desert island and could have all the episodes of only one TV show to binge watch, what show would you choose and why?

Brittany: “Rick and Morty” – It’s a cartoon, but it’s extremely complex, so detailed that I pick up new things all the time.

Christian: “Parks & Rec” – It’s super funny, just the funniest show.

What do you really do at the Y?

Brittany: I establish a relationship with members and then lead them into relationship with the Y family.

Christian: I see everyone as valuable, as someone I can help and someone who can help me. You never know what that person knows.

Our Mission: To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
