I am from Ireland, and enjoy living in Maine and being a part of Maine Course. I worked for Marriott for 25 years before retiring, and I am happily continuing my passion for hospitality here in Portland, ME. It’s important to me to be a part of a team and to provide excellent service to our guests. After all, happy guests equal a happy team! I appreciate Maine Course for giving me this opportunity to continue my passion.  In my spare time I enjoy my five grandchildren, listening to music and traveling.

I started my career with Maine Course in 2014. I really value their commitment to delivering the best comfort, hospitality, and the best service that we can provide to our guests. I enjoy having fun at work and my General Manager, Michelle, has a great sense of humor! Maine Course supports my need to have a good work-life balance. Away from work I enjoy cooking, gardening, and target practice.

Since 2010, Maine Course has been like family to me. I have worked with some of my team members since the beginning while others are just joining the team. What I value most is the company’s commitment to its people. I started as a laundry attendant, and Maine Course has helped me grow into the Front Desk Supervisor position I have today. Maine Course has a strong promote-from-within philosophy, and their passion for our success is what makes this a great company. I am proud to be a part of this team!

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.

I became a part of an extraordinary team in 2011 when I started working with Maine Course Hospitality Group. I began as a line cook and quickly became trained in other areas of the hotel. Maine Course has helped me learn many aspects of hotel operations, and I feel valued as a member of the team. I believe it is important to help people every day in an honest way. If you treat others well, they will do the same for you. I found this to be true here at Maine Course.

Maine Course Hospitality Group has been an amazing team to work for. I feel like I gained a whole new family when I was hired. The people at Maine Course genuinely care for each other, and I’m excited to be working with group of people who are so invested in taking care of our guests, our community and our co-workers. It says a lot that my children ask to visit my workplace and co-workers often, and they don’t want to leave when they’re here. My boys have commented that their Mama is much happier since starting work at Rockland Harbor Hotel, and I see myself being here for a long time.
