I am so happy that I have my dream job with my dream company.

I graduated from Marywood in 2018 with a degree in Hospitality Management and Marketing. I currently work for Marriott Hotels in Bethesda, MD as a Guest Experience Expert.  Marriott is one of the largest hotel brands in the world. My position includes checking guests in and out, answering any questions they have in person or via the phone, and doing anything I can to make their stay enjoyable.

I am so grateful that I am able to do what I love and that I have my dream job right out of college with my dream company. None of this would have been possible without all the experience and classes that Marywood had to offer. The small class settings allowed me to learn everything I needed in order to succeed at what I do now. I am forever thankful to Marywood and will always know that they are a huge reason why I am where I am today.
