How did you hear about Lakeside, or what is your Lakeside story? I had never heard of Lakeside Chautauqua until a job fair this past January. I really enjoyed talking with John and Steve about the community of Lakeside and immediately applied for the internship. Once I did some research, I knew that it would be a great place to get my feet wet in the hotel business.

What are you most looking forward to this summer at Lakeside? I am most looking forward to making 15 great new friends and watching all of the beautiful Lake Erie sunsets!

What do you hope to gain from this experience? I hope to gain life long connections through networking with staff members and community members. I also hope to grow deeper in my faith.

Name one goal you hope to achieve this summer. One goal I have for this summer is to experience what it is like to visit Lakeside Chautauqua on vacation.

What are some of your hobbies and what do you enjoy doing in your free time? I love to read, do calligraphy, and sing.

What is one of your proudest moments or major accomplishments you have achieved thus far in life? One of my proudest moments was getting baptized last Spring. This really impacted my life as I was baptized as a baby, but now I chose it for myself.

What is your dream job? My dream job is to own a boutique that focuses on faith and spreading positivity. I also hope that it would be a place for local artists to sell their work.

Tell us a fun fact about you. I own a small business called Be The Light Calligraphy and will soon be opening an Etsy shop.
