My Story

At points in my career, I was working 60-70 hours per week. There were times where the travel and stress caused anxiety, extreme fatigue, challenges sleeping, and chronic neck pain.

As I eventually grew aware of the effect my job was having on me, I learned to cope and better prioritize mental and physical health. I also made purposeful decisions to make changes – which included taking on a position in my company with more flexibility and autonomy to work from home. I have spoken with hundreds of colleagues, clients, friends, and family – and learned that my situation and experience dealing with work-related health problems is unfortunately not unique. It is a well-known problem in the U.S.

As the ideation for GAFIAAR developed throughout the past few years, another curveball got tossed into the mix: COVID-19. Many of us were forced to stay put, work from home, and spend more time behind the computer than perhaps ever before! It is not human nature to be completely isolated, and hopefully we can now all find creative ways of getting together with our fellow co-workers…in a stress free, relaxing environment.

I share this story because at GAFIAAR we believe we can create an environment and an organization that can help alleviate some of the issues mentioned above…and bring people together once again. We are so excited to host you and look forward to meeting you soon!
