Benjamin Storey

Summary

I am currently enrolled as a junior at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in the College of Health and Human Services.  I am actively studying Hospitality Management with a concentration in Hotel and Lodging.  So far in my academic career, I have received excellent training not only in hotel and lodging, but also in human resource, purchasing, food application and preparation, and safety and sanitation.

I have been interested in hotels for a very long time and have an extreme passion for people. I have been working along with the public for many years, and I believe that that has trained me to be able to work with people in a very professional manor.  To me, there is nothing better than making sure that someone is happy with the product or service that they have received.  The happiness of the customer, or guest, is one of the most essential parts of a successful hospitality establishment.
