• Hobbies/Activities outside of office life?
I live on our family's farm as the four generation with my husband, our son, labradors and horses. When I am not in the office I am generally there working on something outside. We have other family that lives on the other side of the farm so it's nice to be close for visiting. I enjoy being outdoors, hunting (when I have time!), Pilates reformer classes, and going to Atlanta Falcon's games. I also enjoy gardening and tending to many of the old flower gardens on our property.

I also like reading advertising, marketing, business, and tourism articles/magazine when I have time.
• Year Started at Mountain Top Cabin Rentals?
2008. I began as a reservations agent but over time as the company grew, an opportunity arose for me to shift places. When an intern opening became available I was able to learn from the ground up and really immerse myself. With further training and education I moved into Advertising and Marketing full time in 2012/2013. I enjoy researching the data and numbers that drive us to make decisions but also the creative side of it. Our whole team helps with ideas so I get a lot feedback from them too. I generally have multiple projects going at once as well as things that come up that need to be addressed quickly... It's something that is always changing yet always the same so i'm never bored!
• How do you describe working at Mountain Top Cabin Rentals and what sets our company a part?
We are a unique set of people.. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses and we all accept those and balance each other out. We're a really great team! Our company is two-parts: Hospitality/Tourism and Property Management. We each have our own departments and specific tasks but will help each other if needed. We all work toward the same goal of offering luxurious properties with the best customer service. We are all cogs in the wheel that turns this machine that we love!
