She was the youngest female general manager in the company’s history, maintained the highest service scores at each property, and significantly reduced employee turnover rates all while maintaining enthusiastic professional courtesy. The results landed her Employee of the Year twice as well as several other customer service awards. She holds an associate degree in Hospitality & Travel from Bradford School in Pittsburgh, PA, and Certifications in Adobe Web Design and Volunteer Management. Chrissey lives in the Kansas City area with one good dog and one rotten dog.
