Why did you choose SHA?
Having grown up exposed to a small, family-owned, lodging company, I wanted to have a formal education of the hospitality industry.

What are some of your favorite BU memories?
I thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Kwag’s accounting classes. They were intellectually stimulating and challenging.  I am also forever grateful to the thoughtful staff of SHA who always helped me in finding new scholarships, making my education there possible.

What was your first full-time job? How did you end up in your current position?
Courtyard Boston Tremont Hotel Social Sales Manager was my first job after college. It was through the Management Trainee Program.

Please describe your current role. How did your SHA education impact your career?
Now, a stay at home mom, I am taking a break from the hospitality industry.

Any advice for current and prospective students?
