Nick first began working at the Zesiger Center in August of 2012 and since then has truly become a leader on any shift that he works. Whether he is popening the facility, giving tours of the facility or lending a hand with a project, Nick’s commitment, great attitude, and friendly service set an example for the rest of the staff while providing great service to our patrons.
