“I was born to serve people and work in a hospitality career. Watching how a smile changes a person’s day is rewarding. Working with someone to solve a problem and change a negative outcome to a positive one is inspirational. Working hard for something I love is called passion. I am passionate for my team and my guests at Candlewood. This is where I am supposed to be.”
