With an exemplary work history of monitoring and supporting up to 250 hotel and restaurant projects simultaneously, I feel confident in my ability to generate results for your company.

Having traveled extensively during my tenure in the hospitality industry, 2 ½ million miles plus, I am familiar with most major and minor cities in the U.S. I would welcome a position with continued traveling responsibilities.
