I began hosting at the age of 16. The Boathouse was a great place for me to begin working at because of its high standards. It pushed me to go out of my comfort zone. I learned to talk on the phone in a professional manner while taking reservations, calling to confirm them, or simply answering questions. Not only did it help me with my Phone skills, it helped with face to face communications. I learned how to relate to the costumers and read their emotions very well. After about a year of working with the company I was trained to become Lead Host. Lead Host entailed everything I did before plus taking Sunday inventory, going through Pre-shift with the other hosts, and setting the restaurant up for success on our busy night. This really helped with my leadership qualities. I then was promoted to being a Food Runner/Lead Host. I enjoyed food running because I enjoyed being out on the floor and being able to interact with the guests more.
While working with 4-H I also learned more leadership skills. Each year I would teach an Improv class where my main focus was getting the children to open up and get out of their comfort zone.
I am involved with the Conversation Partners Program at Virginia Tech University. I meet with a foreign exchange student once a week for an hour. We talk about what is going on in our life, school work, and learn about each others culture.
