What attracted you to this property or what was your first impression of this property?
I was extremely attracted to the goal of Five Star achievement. I have a level of service and sales orientation that meshes well with the luxury experience which Hotel Bennett strives for. I also was very interested in becoming a part of the Salamander team. The architecture and design elements speak for themselves.
What makes you passionate about the hospitality industry?
There is always a goal to go above and beyond expectation as well as the desire to create memorable experiences. This is extremely rewarding when successfully accomplished.
What's been one of the most inspirational moments you've experieced in your career so far?
There are too many to share. However, I am always inspired when being recognized by my management team, they do a phenomenal job of acknowledging my efforts which is personally motivating. I have also received “thank you” cards in recognition of the care and efforts shown during guest or group stays. These cards reflect the difference that we can make.
What's one thing most people don't know about you?
I enjoy sewing.
What are some of your favorite hobbies?
I enjoy quality time with friends and family. This quality time can be spent doing any activity. However, I personally enjoy going to the beach, sunbathing, hiking, boating, fishing and sight-seeing.
In your opinion, where is the best spot to visit at the resort and why?
Although Camellias is truly unique and stunning, I personally love our terraced suites. The terrace addition to the guest room adds a level of exclusivity-not to mention the views.
Who is your hero and why?
If I had to pick one, it would be my father. He recognized an issue and fought with the doctors until a diagnosis was found. He saved my life with his persistence.
What travel destination is on your bucket list?
What is a goal (big or small) that you hope to achieve in the next five years?
