Hospitality is not thinking of yourself, it’s thinking of others. This service mindset genuinely describes Christine, known for her listening, empathy, and quick-thinking. As if by magic, she gets everyone what they need and makes them feel good in the process. Christine fittingly grew her management career in the fine dining world followed by years in special events and conference management. When she does pamper herself, her favorite destination to visit, by far, is Aruba. In any city she travels to, she leans into her passion for hospitality by trying out new wineries and breweries.
Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don’t want to. Richard Branson
