Reservations Agent - Customer Relations - Reputation Management


As an outgoing and ambitious individual who has 5+ years experience in Customer Service  roles at Choice/Crown Hotels and 7+ years experience in the work force, I believe that I have developed the skills necessary to become an asset and excel in a company which will utilize my skills.

I am a person who believes strongly in personal growth, and because of this I have moved solely to Melbourne from Christchurch (New Zealand) 2 years ago to challenge myself in a new environment. 
Since moving, I have been employed for numerous companies such as Choice Hotels Asia-Pac, Groove Party Hire and my current position as a Reservation Agent at Crown Hotels.
I believe that my work experience and track record of excelling targets speaks for itself and that I will be of great assistance to any employer which requires a hardworking and autonomous team player.
