Hostess and Server

Stone Creek

With above listed skills, I would like to obtain a position in restaurant or hotel management where I can utilize my acquired knowledge and collective experience to assist an outstanding organization in achieving success.

In my current position as hostess and server at Stone Creek I have been able to utilize my interest and knowledge gained from a current class I am taking at Kansas State University - Careers in Nutrition and Dietetics. In recent years society has become more aware and concerned with nutrition and diet and the knowledge I have gained from this course has allowed me to guide inquisitive patrons of my restaurant to make educated and healthier decisions when dining in my place of work.

In addition, I have been able to apply the principals of the ADA Knowledge and Competencies and their outcomes to the many situations I encounter in my job - from nutrition information, health care policy, budgetary ability, consumer health issues (food and lifestyle choices) and encourage overall wellness.
