Learn About Roxan McAlmont

Q. How did you get started with Fort Wood Hotels?

A. I started working part-time at Fairfield Inn in 1998 when they first opened under different ownership. In 2002, Steve bought the hotel and asked us to stay with the company.  At the time I was the front desk manager and continued as the front desk manager after the ownership transitioned.  I later became the General Manager in 2012.    

Q. What brought you to the St. Robert, Missouri area?

A. As a military wife, we were transferred to the area in 1997.  I have stayed in the area ever since.  

Q. What are some of your favorite things to do when you are not at work?

A. I love to kick back and relax.  Usually, when I am not at work, I am catching up with work at the house.  I do enjoy sitting down to play my favorite game Candy Crush on my tablet.  In the past, you may have seen me playing bingo but these days, I am more low-key.  

Q. What activities are you involved with outside of work?

A. I am an active Kiwanis member.  I also help lead a Fort Wood Hotel's Relay for Life team for Pulaski County.  This year I became a graduate of the Leadership Pulaski County Class 2018.  In addition to that, I participate in the Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber of Commerce.  It keeps me busy but I enjoy getting involved with the local community.  

Q. What did you want to be when you grew up?

A. For the most part, I can't remember exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I have always loved working with numbers, which lead me down the path of accounting. I went to school in accounting in Guyana, South America and worked in that field for a few years.  I started working in accounting at AAFES in Fort Huachuca.  I was transferred to this area working in the retail division.  That move brought me to the area which led me to work for this company. 

Q. What is something very few people know about you?

A. This is a fun fact but I am double jointed.  I have always been able to slip my shoulders out of its socket. When I was younger, I used this skill to be mischievous.  One example was a boy was swinging me by my arms and I slipped my joints out of its socket.  I told him he did it to me and that I was going to tell the principal.  He was so scared and I thought it was funny.  It was a joke but he didn't think it was too funny. 

Q. Tell us about your family?

A. I am originally from Guyana in South America.  I come from a large family which I love.  There were seven of us, four boys and three girls.  Unfortunately, my parents have both passed and two of my siblings.  As for the rest of my siblings, we are spread all over.  Two of them live in Canada, two live in Guyana, South America and I live here.  I do have one daughter, Keane.  She lives in Virginia and works for Virginia State University.
