Employment History

I got started in Hospitality, in Peru, South America - working my way up from an entry level position at the kitchen and dining room.

My exposure to Hospitality is integral.

I have learned the basics of Hospitality and the Value of Multi-Tasking at small hotels and from there moved to the big picture of highly specialized positions in large properties, the city Hotels and beach Resorts!

I have hands-on experience in F&B - production, service, catering sales, management - Front Desk Clerk, Night Auditor, Storeroom keeper, Marketing and Sales manager, Rooms helper and Laundry supervisor!
