BEST MEMORIES OF YOUR THEORETICAL COURSES AT VATEL
My marketing course and my group projects courses both taught me a lot. I use what I learned there every day when I have to train my team members and walk them through their learning path in the hotel.
BEST MEMORIES OF YOUR PRACTICAL COURSES AT VATEL
The weeks I spent in the kitchens at the Vatel Hotel’s Restaurant and Brasserie. This could seem crazy to you, but having to get up early to peel vegetables or scale fish taught me to stretch my own limits.
YOUR BEST INTERNSHIP MEMORY:
Loads of them! But I’d have to say when I first came to the US in 2015 for a six-month internship. I landed in New York and had to go to Rhode Island. I used all of the mental strength that Vatel and my professional experience had given me. I was able to communicate in English and find someone to help me with my seven suitcases to go to Newport. I learned to trust myself and my skills.
YOUR JOB IN A FEW WORDS
I’m in charge of guest satisfaction and also the hotel’s development strategy. My guests are my number one priority.

THE PART OF THE HOTEL YOU PREFER:
The 41 Newport is a boutique hotel with 28 rooms including two cottages and two lofts outside of the hotel itself. The hotel also has a marina with a bar and a restaurant outside, and that’s what I like the best. When night falls, the marina turns into a night club, attracting the huge yachts that the billionaires in Rhode Island have.
