Industrial Athlete Nation Highlight: Aneesa Winn
Check out Aneesa Winn of Tree Chic LLC in the video below.
Aneesa journey into being an arborist was natural. She always enjoyed anything that was creative and hands-on and like to see the difference that she makes. Plus, always liked working outside. When she found out that some people climb trees for a living, she knew that's what she would end up doing.
She explains, if you work in the industry, there are definitely people that are all about tree life. They want to know everything about it, they want to climb the biggest trees they can and be the biggest climber. They make goals and keep at it everyday. For some, it is just a job. They might want to stay a little closer to the ground and aren't interested in new techniques or gear. But, Aneesa is definitely not the ladder.
Her favorite part of my job is simply put, the climbing. Aneesa's biggest goal is to be able to climb the biggest trees and just have fun.
"It's very exciting for me to be able to practice what I do. Make big swings. Climb out to the very ends. Enjoy the views and the people," she says. "I'm very much about always trying to learn. I think it's important to set goals, be patient and build confidence. Learning is important, otherwise what would we be here for?"
To Aneesa, being an industrial athlete is "someone who decided to make their career out of exploring and pushing the limits of their mental and physical ability."
