Several times in my life I’ve taken big leaps.
One time in particular:
I was a supervisor at United Parcel Service, climbing the ladder and having a successful career. Then, boxing came along and I began evaluating what I wanted in my life. Boxing ignited my passion for sport that I was getting further from in the corporate world. I loved the excitement of operations at UPS, but I really ached for athletics. When I decided to quit UPS, I gave up a high paying job and a lot of future security. Seattle Plastics owners Mike Albanese and Jenny Peters were incredibly supportive and gave me a part time job while I made the transition from UPS to pro boxer and coach. They sponsored my pro career, made a killer acrylic case for my NW Title Belt and were emotionally supportive. Their dedication to philanthropy, community and boxing was inspiring and still is. They run a top notch business and continue to help boxers go for their dreams. Thank you Jenny and Mike for the donation to boxer Jen Hamann!
