Theresa studied fashion at the University of Delaware. She found a summer internship opening at Equinox, and jumped at the opportunity to live in NYC. Though Theresa didn’t have experience in the field of human resources, she learned quickly as an intern and developed a good relationship with her manager—and now enjoys the job full-time.
Theresa assists with managing benefits available to Equinox employees, such as having their retirement planning options, medical, dental, and vision care, life insurance, and corporate discounts. She also spends time visiting Equinox’s different clubs to help employees make the right decisions in picking a plan that fits their needs.
“Right now, I’m visiting clubs all over the country to answer questions employees have about their insurance and retirement plans. When you have as many employees as we do spread out across the U.S., it makes me proud to be able to be to sit down and talk face-to-face with the people I'm supporting.”
“Starting as an intern here, it was really nice having a manager who saw the potential in me and took me on full-time. My manager will always have my back—if I make a mistake, he’s there to support and fix it with me.”
