Who do you work for and what is your role?  I am the Corporate Sales Manager at Embassy Suites by Hilton – Cincinnati RiverCenter

What is the best thing about your job?  Meeting new people, forming friendships and working together with my groups to provide them with impeccable service. Also, feeling accomplished because we were able to make them happy and exceed guest expectations. 

What are the 3 most important skills you use at work?  Prospecting skills, listening skills, and excellent follow-up/follow-through skills

What one piece of advice would you give to someone beginning their career in the Meeting Industry?  Do what you say you are going to do – This builds trust and is largely the reason clients book with you. They need to feel confident that you will deliver what you promise. 

What super-power would you love to have to help you do your job better? I would like to be able to twitch my nose and cast a spell… clients/guests would want what I have to offer - They’d be begging me to stay at our hotel!!  / 859-655-4663 direct / 859-866-6395 cell
