Passionate about hospitality, I am a dynamic and challenge driven professional who has a relentless drive to deliver more than just results and always willing to assume additional responsibilities.

I have a track record of effectively leading and managing different departments, and of making guests feels cared for, valued, and respected, and always do everything I can to deliver results that will contribute to the overall mission and success of the hotel.

As true hands on leader, I always jump in and assist wherever is needed, and enjoy training my co-workers in customer service techniques and actively seeks out opportunities to elevate my colleagues' performance.

I developed an analytical and expedient approach to problem solving which always results in a win/win resolution for all parties.

Naturally curious, I am constantly looking to keep up-to-date in the new products and services that will meet the needs of tomorrow's savvy global travelers.
