Greensboro, NC: The new year has begun and there are many options for healthy new year resolutions in store for the employees at Go-Forth Pest Control.

Vice President of Go-Forth Pest Control and chairperson of the Guilford County Go Red For Women campaign, Leah Hazelwood, has strived to create a wellness community within the Go-Forth family with many attributes such as free nutritional snacks in break rooms, paid wellness reboot programs, mental health classes and now, an employee fitness center.
This fitness center is open to all employees of Go-Forth Pest Control. The employees are encouraged to work out whenever their availability is open within their workday.
Hazelwood has made it her priority to build a supportive space for health and wellness within the Go-Forth corporate location in addition to their eight locations throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.
