I have been working in the customer service industry for the past 7 years. In 2014 I was working as a housekeeper at Best Western in Ames, Iowa. After a couple months they noticed I had a great work ethic and promoted me to a supervisor.
Now that I have moved to Florida I started working at Fuzzy's Taco Shop and Topgolf. I started off as a food runner at Topgolf but was promoted to Server and then to Events Ambassador shortly after starting. I also started off as a cashier at Fuzzy's. After about 6 months working for Fuzzy's they asked me to be a manager for the store.
I have learned with any career path one may choose to take, hard work and dedication will bring promotions and success.
Anytime that I can help out my furry friends, that is what I'll be doing. I really enjoy getting to meet animals and trying to make their lives a little better one treat or hug at a time. I worked at an animal sanctuary in Australia and the experiences from that trip were life changing.
I moved from Iowa to Florida in August of 2016. I come from a very big family of 6 sisters, 1 brother, and 27 nieces & nephews. Family is a huge part of my life and even though I am 1,400 miles away I know they'd be here on a drop of a dime if I needed them.
I live in Brandon, FL with my dog Ashes and boyfriend Juan Carlos. In our free time we like to hit up the dog beach/dog bar. If Ashes is over at his Aunt Nelly's house maybe Juan and I will go to the theater and watch a movie or eat at Fred's Market.
Traveling is a big part of my life. After spending time in Australia I realized the world is so much bigger. I like to go on cruises because it is a cheaper way to see different places in the world. This year I am planning on taking a trip to England to see Manchester United play at the Old Trafford stadium.
