As you may know, the former social media gal Kiara left her job here at the Lord Elgin to move to Australia for a few months. While it was really hard to say goodbye to her (she’s one of best friends) she was kind enough to score me an interview with her then boss (and mine now!) Ann, the Director of Sales & Marketing here at the hotel. We chatted about University and even found out we both frequent the same yoga studio in Ottawa. When Ann emailed me offering me the position I was more than thrilled. I started here not knowing what to expect and feeling a bit anxious, however I automatically felt welcomed and part of team when I stepped into the Sales office. Max, Liz, Andrew, Tessa and Ann (Kiara did blogs on all of them!) are the most gracious and helpful co-workers one could ever dream of having.
That being said, here is a little bit about myself. I am twenty years old and am currently completing my undergrad at the University of Ottawa in English and Psychology (one more year!) After I graduate uOttawa, I’m planning to attend Algonquin College for their Public Relations program, the same one Kiara completed. I also serve part time at Big Rig Kitchen & Brewery, which is a great place to work. I am an avid reader and shopper (ask any of the sales team!) I love to practice yoga, try new food and especially to travel. I hope this helps you get to know the new girl behind the social media and I can’t wait to learn more about the Lord Elgin!
