What have you found to be most valuable about your NEWH involvement, both personally and professionally?
The PEOPLE are the most valuable part of NEWH. My membership and involvement for me personally has created a network of friendships that have enriched my life and opened doors to grow beyond my professional career. NEWH is about education and networking and I have continued not only my professional growth but my personal growth. The organization promotes sharing knowledge through chapter programs, seminars, key speakers, and attending the Leadership conferences. This organization has not only enhanced my life personally it has deepened my connection to the career avenue I cherish through networking and education.
Why do you recommend people get involved with NEWH?
I recommend that all who are in the hospitality industry get involved with NEWH to continue your personal and professional development. Join your chapter board and volunteer to contribute on committees. The more you support and become involved the greater the rewards. It is an incredible feeling to have a platform that is laser focused on bringing the industry news, trends, and suppling tools that is helping each of us to navigate through one of the darkest times of our world. NEWH kept me informed and provided a lifeline to see my way through the absence of the vein that pumps joy and excitement into our careers and pure love of the Industry. There is an incredible executive team who is committed and dedicated to making this organization work for its members. You will not be disappointed in becoming a member of NEWH.

My proudest accomplishment with NEWH is to recently have an opportunity to work with the incredible EID Committee.

When you are not working or at and NEWH event, where can we find you?
Before COVID-19 I was not very cable in the kitchen, however being shut in, I have discovered a newfound passion and avenue of creativity. I love watching the cooking shows, seeing recipes on Instagram, and tasting the dishes, well probably tasting a bit too much! I am excited that the Atlanta NEWH Chapter will be putting together a recipe book! I am sure it will be filled with many scrumptious dishes to try.
