This month’s Featured YPAL Member blog post is about Kathleen Jones, of Shred415!

What is your day job? 
I’m the owner of Shred415 Highlands.

How are you involved with YPAL? 
I moved to Louisville in July of 2018 and immediately joined YPAL to get involved in the community and meet new people. I completed the Emerging Leaders Program in the fall of 2018 and attend networking events whenever I can.

Why did you choose Louisville? 
Both of my parents grew up in Louisville so I have been visiting family here all my life. Fun fact, my parents were high school sweethearts! I have always had a special place in my heart for this city, especially the Highlands neighborhood. The stars aligned with the opportunity to open my own Shred415 studio and choosing Louisville was a no-brainer.

What was your first job? 
My first “real” job was at a third party freight provider in Chicago. Even though I quickly learned that Logistics was not for me, it provided invaluable experience and I met friends that I am still close with today.

Book recommendation? 
I am currently listening to the audiobook “Dare to Lead” by Brene Brown. So far, so good.

Favorite thing to do in Louisville? 
See live music.

Favorite restaurant in Louisville? 
Butchertown Grocery for date night and Naive for a quick bite. I am still on the hunt for the best pizza in Louisville. DM me (@kathleen_415) with your favorites!

What is your hobby? 
I love fitness and pizza. #balance
