Two years ago I was brought in as a temp employee to help fill in the gap at the front desk. I had just graduated college and moved back home to Austin and just needed a little income to tide me over as I looked for a new hotel gig in town - it's what I had spent the last years training towards. Wanting to be GM of my own fancy-ass Marriott. *dreamy eyes*
Not even a week into my temp position I was approached by Burnie and Yvonne. There was this big campaign going on, ya know? It was called Lazer Team. Well, it was... uh... big. Kinda really big. People were asking questions, Backers wanted to know what XYZ was and so many other things. I was asked to take a stab at the campaign and see what I could do.
I ended up never finding a hotel position. Life took another direction (one that I'm totally okay with) and I decided to stay on as the front office coordinator/other positions... and now settled into my role as a Community Marketing Associate with a pretty cool group of people.
This is my family: the online RT Community and my fucking awesome coworkers. (Love all you guys and gals!)
So, here's to a very symmetrical two years from Lazer Team to Million Dollars, But... and here's to many more ahead! *clinks champagne glass*
