Wellness – It’s More Than Just Avoiding the Flu


You wouldn’t be very interested in a boat with a hole in it, or a bike with a wheel missing; yet too often we accept missing pieces in our overall wellness because we don’t see the bigger picture of what wellness actually means. Wellness isn’t just about whether or not you’re sick. Wellness encompasses one’s overall state of being—physically, mentally, and socially. Being aware of your overall wellness and taking steps to improve upon any areas of need can have a positive impact on your quality of life. Here are three basic areas to consider when checking in on your … Continue reading

New Job


“I am starting a new job today!” This is a phrase some of us may be more familiar with than others, yet still one that has huge meaning for all involved. Starting a new position at a new company presents unique challenges and opportunities that can be nerve-wracking and exciting all at once. As one of the newest employees at VAST I had every single emotional feeling in the world you could think of leading up to my first day here, most notably nervousness. I was leaving a position and a place in which I had become familiar and comfortable … Continue reading

Chat With Us!


If you have traveled to our website lately you may have noticed three little words staring at you from the bottom right corner: Chat with us! While these words are self-explanatory, what they don’t tell you is that this has been an adventure two years in the making. Allow me to elaborate. Two years ago we decided to totally revamp our website, and after plenty of high level collaboration with a local creative agency, Elegant Seagulls, our vision became the reality that you currently see when you go to vastsolution.com.  Part of the collaboration that I just mentioned was the … Continue reading

What’s up in Wellness


The definition of wellness according to Merriam-Webster is “the quality or state of being in good health, especially as an actively sought goal.”  Good health is a broad term and can have many facets. Our ZEN committee holds “Lunch & Learn” sessions throughout the year on a variety of topics.  Our session this month focused on the most important meal of the day – breakfast! Angie Cherette from Sage and Spry came to our office and taught us (in one hour) how to make almond milk, green smoothies, and chia overnight oats. Everything was simple and delicious!  Personally, I’m pretty … Continue reading

The New Employee Experience


Starting a new career can be daunting; often times doing so can induce rapid heartbeats, nervousness, excess sweating, even anxiety.  Most people begin looking for long-term careers in their 20s.  It’s been said that this working generation switches careers or career paths six to ten times throughout life.  To me, that seems like a lot of change.  And change can be scary!  Common questions people ask themselves when considering making a career move are: How will I make more money? How will I become secure? How will I make my family secure? When I was new to the workforce, I … Continue reading
