Q: How did you start working with MHG?
A: I started at The Great George the summer after graduating high school, and it became a fantastic summer gig while I went to school in Ontario. After returning to PEI in 2011, The Great George became my permanent home and in 2013 I was promoted to Manager of Guest Services and the hotel’s Concierge.
Q: If you could have one guest stay at the Great George who would it be? Would you do anything special for them when they arrive?
A: We’ve had some of the biggest music icons stay with us, so in my opinion, we are missing some A-List movie stars to add to our photo collection! I could imagine setting the atmosphere in one of our Romantic Hideaway Suites with fresh flowers in abundance, a handcrafted basket bursting with only the best Prince Edward Island made products, and serving the finest Island delicacies to the lady that can do no wrong – Meryl Streep!
Q: What’s one thing you have learned during your career with MHG?
A: The support from every MHG team member is what drives our forward thinking, positive mentality, which I have never felt to this extent at any other job. The collaboration from every MHG location has created one of the healthiest work environments around – it will forever impact where I choose to work and more importantly, who I choose to work for.
Q: What would you say is a ‘must have’ to be an MHG employee?
A: The opportunities are endless with MHG if you have what we at The Great George call the “IT” Factor. It is not easily defined, but if you love connecting with people, take pride and ownership in all that you do, work hard, show passion to the highest degree, and do all of this as your genuine authentic self, then you will flourish within MHG.
Q: What’s your favourite MHG dish/location?
A: I cannot resist a trip to The Barrington Steakhouse & Oyster Bar each time I visit Halifax! My recommendation to you all: sit on the 2nd floor at a window seat in those unbelievably comfortable armchairs with a glass of red wine (let the Sommelier choose!) and a perfectly grilled steak.
