From scheduling work shifts and overseeing administrative operations to managing budgets and ensuring top-notch guest service, I excel at performing comprehensive management tasks to drive efficiency and productivity. Furthermore, I am highly skilled in prioritizing tasks, developing effective communication and organizational procedures, and supervising front desk personnel while maintaining compliance with all guidelines and standards.
Highlights of my experience include…

Recruiting, hiring, training, developing, coaching, and supervising front office / desk team members to achieve superior customer service and guest experiences and drive adherence to hotel policies and procedures.
Communicating regularly and effectively with cross-functional departments such as Guest Services, Concierge, Bellman, and Shuttle Service.
Excelling at balancing multiple tasks while providing top-level organization and communication skills and improving operational systems.
My skills in front office leadership and general administration have been finely honed, and I am confident my additional strengths will readily translate to your environment. The chance to offer more insight into my qualifications would be most welcome.
