I love developing people and guiding them into successful, well rounded sales professionals. My first job at a hotel was Night Audit. I quickly realized that the lodging industry was what I wanted to do. Once I made the decision to make a career out of hotels, the doors began to open. I’ve pretty much held every position a hotel has to offer, from Operations to Sales. I’ve been fortunate to work for amazing companies like Marriott, Hilton, Starwood, and now DKN. Having a creative mind has proven a strength for me at DKN. DKN has given me the freedom to innovate and apply my ideas in what I do. My favorite thing about DKN is the Three Legged Stool philosophy. I have embraced it as it comes naturally and I truly believe in it. I feel that my team and I have been successful because of it, and because of it, we will find success.
As the Marketing Coordinator for DKN Hotels, I am in charge of marketing our portfolio of hotels with my amazing mentor, Shanna. We are the ones who convey our brand messages and make sure they reach the right audiences at the right time. I’ve always had a love for hospitality and travel and I love that I can combine this love with my passion for marketing. Studying abroad in Barcelona and traveling throughout Europe for a semester is what made me realize I wanted to be a part of the hospitality field and help others enjoy great experiences throughout their travels. DKN Hotels takes culture very seriously, always encouraging commitment to all seven values, but my favorites are Teamwork and Innovation. As a Marketing Coordinator, teamwork is crucial to getting things done well and efficiently and innovation is essential in marketing as you must find new and creative ways to reach current and potential guests.
