Bre's Career Path

I won't be a barista forever. This is just what I've done through high school and now college for income.

I'm currently working on a degree in business. Who knows, maybe I'll end up opening my own coffee shop in the future.

Work/Life Balance

I only work 20 hours most weeks, so "balance" is rarely an issue. That said, I can think of a few weeks in the past where both school and work were busy. When things do get hectic, I prioritize school and typically reach out to a co-worker to get a shift covered. I do the same for them as often as possible.

Also, there have been times when the shop is very busy at the end of my shift, and the manager asks me to work later than scheduled. I usually don't mind, but it is something to be prepared to manage.
