Read on to learn about her journey to being promoted to General Manager at Fairfield by Marriott and some fun facts about her!




How did you get started with Fort Wood Hotels? I began my journey with Fort Wood Hotels on April 29th, 2009 when I excitedly got to start my first job as a housekeeper at the Fairfield Inn. In 2011, I got promoted as the Executive Assistant at Hampton Inn. After a little over 10 months, I transitioned back to the Fairfield Inn as the Executive Housekeeper until 2015, when I moved to Front Desk Manager.

I am so proud and blessed to be a part of the Fort Wood Hotels…
