I was born in Nashville, Tennessee, but moved to Chicago as a very small child and grew up in the suburbs. After graduating high school, I attended Travel Career Training in North Miami Beach Florida, in hopes of obtaining a career in travel for the airlines or cruise lines. I ended up finding my passion for hotels after starting my first job as a hotel front desk clerk in 1990. It has been my career choice ever since. I worked for Tharaldson Management Company beginning in 1994 for ten years and then joined Raymond Management Company in 2003. I have two sons, Shawn and Shane who have both worked with RMC and have grown into fine young men. My favorite hobbies include photography, reading and most recently, keeping fit and healthy.
