You graduated with a degree in hospitality management. What attracted you to that degree for a college major?
I originally came up to Grand Valley State University to study Accounting. I switched majors halfway through college to Hospitality and Tourism Management.
What are you most excited about with your position at EVCC?
I love the communication between guests, members and employees. I am excited to start fitting into my role as Assistant Food and Beverage Manager, as well as meeting all the members, and co-leading a great team.
What is your favorite food in general? What about your favorite dish at EVCC?
I would have to say my favorite food is either steak or spaghetti. Unfortunately, I haven’t had a steak here (yet) but I hear it’s to die for. My favorite foods at Egypt Valley are the Ben Ben Fried Rice and the Seoul Bowl.
What are some of your favorite ways to spend your free time?
Free time? What’s that? I love hanging out with friends, talking to my cats, and playing sports.
What’s on your playlist as you come into work each day?
My playlist for the car ride into work is named “whatever is on the radio.” I don’t really have a set list, I just pick a station and go with it.
What is something most members would be surprised to learn about you?
Something members would be surprised to learn about me would be that I grew up in Ann Arbor, but I’m not a U of M fan. I’m not saying I dislike them, but I don’t actively watch them!
