HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY?

My 1st job was at the Ritz at 16. I did every position you can think of from dish to house keeping. Once I started doing events for them was when I learned how much I enjoyed doing them and I decided to make it my career.

When did you become the Banguet Captain at The Francis?
