Well I figured it was about time I updated this blog. In May of this year I was promoted to General Manager at the Hampton Inn. Perfect timing after graduating with my Bachelors in Hotel, Resort and Hospitality Management. So far it has been the most amazing job and I feel so lucky to have it. Hilton requires a certain amount of training before I became an official GM so I got to travel a ton this summer. My biggest trips were to Memphis, TN and Orlando, FL. I went to Orlando in October and had the most amazing weather. It was a 5 day conference on new things for the brand and how to be the best leader I can be. I met a ton of amazing people including Marcus Buckingham!! They also closed down Sea World for us and had incorporated "Hampton" things throughout the park. It was such a fun week - the only thing that was missing was Derek : (. He surprised my by painting my wall purple - something I had been longing for for a while now and I just love it.
