My responsibility starts and ends with making a difference. Whether it’s ensuring our DKN culture and values permeate our entire organization or that we continue to grow and create, my work is to always move us in the direction of our vision. I started in Accounting and quickly decided that I did not like the career path I had chosen. Jumped ship, took the risk of managing family finances, and got into the hotel business by acquiring 2 hotels. Since 1984, we’ve bought, sold and developed 40+ hotels. And I firmly believe that we’ve gotten to this place because of our culture and our people.

Networking is the name of my game! Coming from a background in marketing, business development and business ownership, my position as Real Estate Associate at DKN Hotels is perfect because it allows me the opportunity to meet and network with various groups of people. I also thrive on finding opportunities and securing hotel entitlements as it is so rewarding to know I am helping to create jobs within the hospitality industry. During my time at DKN Hotels, I have worked to develop a more transparent real estate department with truly open communication as this focuses on my favorite DKN Hotels value – Value & Respect. From the moment I walked through the DKN Hotels door, every team member has been extremely helpful, respectful and supportive. I hope to give this all back to DKN Hotels threefold.

I came to the US in 1995 with a degree and experience in Nursing. Being new to the country, I took the opportunity to work at the front desk in a hotel far from the Nursing degree I earned in college. I am blessed, fortunate and privileged that I found my home at DKN Hotels 20 years ago. DKN Hotels had given me the opportunity to grow and learn the different aspects of the hotel business over the years. I started working at the hotel Front Desk and made it to being a General Manager. Learning became even more fun and exciting when I took the opportunity to work directly with the big boss. There was so much to learn in payroll, planning an event, Real Estate, Financing, Admin, Development, Procurement, Project Accounting…etc. and I must say, learning all of these made it so easy because of DKN’s Culture and Values. I come to work not because I have to but because I love what I do. I am proud to be part of DKN Hotels team and I’m forever grateful.
