Behind the Desk: Ruth Party!!
Here is the next installment in our new series called Behind the Desk, about our beloved and much appreciated Front Desk staff. These CrossFitters take care of the important duties of checking in our members, handling walk-ins, tidying up after classes, and so many other things that it would take forever to list them. They are the glue that holds this gym together!
Full name: Ruth M. Pardee (prounounced “Party!!” with two exclamation points.)
Where were you born and where did you grow up: Born and raised in Berkeley, California
First album that you loved: The Shrek soundtrack
What are you up to when you’re not at 597 Degraw Street: I work part-time for a small tech company. Other than that I love to go out to movies, go on bike rides, and cook.
“Ask me about that time I…”: Broke my nose while attempting to shoot a rifle. More me being stupid than an actual good story…
Earth is about to implode but aliens on a previously undiscovered planet named Euripides want to preserve one artifact from humans. What would you offer them? A Steinway grand piano (art, craftsmanship, and technology)
