A New Adventure

My grandmother always told me that a person needs to make changes in their life every seven years. This keeps us fresh and happy and fulfilled. In honor of my own 28th birthday, I am making a new and exciting change in my life. As of Friday I am taking a break from the hospitality industry. Don't worry, I'm not going too far away. I have accepted a position as an instructor at Stratford University in Falls Church Virginia.

Stratford offers both an associates and bachelors degree in Hotel/Restaurant Management and in Culinary. I will be teaching four lower division classes and one upper division class each week. Please feel free to check them out at

My new position will allow me to have a much better work schedule (8a-1p), more money and a new opportunity to grow professionally. Most of you know that I had just recently made a work change a few months ago to the Holiday Inn Tysons Corner. While I was very pleased to finally get some sales experience, I couldn't help the long nagging feeling I have had for, I dare say for several years now, that I wanted to try something different. So, here I go! Thanks to the support of my incredible husband and family, I am starting a new adventure.

I know that I owe a more personal letter to most of you, and I'm sorry that it will probably take me awhile to get to it. I start at Stratford on July 21st and my first classes begin on August 4th. In the meantime, please drop me a line.

I hope that everyone is doing well...happy and healthy and enjoying the summer.
