Years of Participation
One of my favorite things about the hospitality industry, inside of my role, and being in the world, is that I am always cognizant of within that moment and place, it is someone’s best day of their life . This is an important concept to me. Sometimes we get lost in the minutiae of our daily tasks and routines, and forget what we are really here for - to provide the backdrop and hospitality to create that best day or memory for the guest. Secondly, it’s the relationships you develop over the course of the years. From coworkers to vendors to guests, I have been very lucky to meet amazing people and have great experiences with them. It’s the ability to turn a negative into a positive. Some of my best regulars are the ones that started with a negative experience and I was able to turn around, to step outside of myself and be in their shoes, and deliver that unexpected positive outcome to the situation. When not at work, I enjoy the moments that my life offers me. Sitting on a dock in Maine, looking out at the lake and the sense of calm and contentment that provides. Sitting around a campfire with a tasty beverage and great people, laughing until it hurts. Cooking at home for loved ones. The feeling of being out on the golf course, and wishing I was there more and experiencing and learning what this wonderful world has to offer, getting outside my comfort zone and discovering new favorites.
