My mother has had the greatest impact on me and on my passion for excellence. My father passed early in life, and my mother raised us. She taught me never to look down on anyone and to treat people with respect. She taught me that as long as you work hard you will persevere. Since I started with Maine Course in 2014, I have been given the freedom to express myself through the service that I provide while connecting with our guests. I feel supported from the top down; that if I make a mistake it will not be the end of the road; instead, it is turned into a learning experience. I feel respected for who I am, respected for how and what I contribute to the hotel, and that’s what I love about Maine Course.
