Tell us a bit about yourself?

I joined Atlas 7 years ago as a casual Team Member Breakfast and thanks to my team, Atlas and a lot of hard work I am living the dream of what I have always wished for in my future. I’ve found that if you are consistently committed to the job, you’ll reap the rewards.

What has been your highlight of working here so far?

The highlight would be getting the phone call from David (my COM) informing me of my promotion to HOM. I thank god that everything I have today didn’t happen overnight and that I had to wait and fail to get to where I am now because it allows me to be grateful for my journey.

What are you most looking forward to in your Atlas career?

Learning more and more about the job and leading my team to success! They are an amazing group of people with great skills and it`s our time to shine.

Which one of the Atlas values means the most to you and why?

The Atlas Value which means the most to me is WORK TOGETHER. There is something incredible in having people, with different cultures, personalities and lives getting together to achieve a goal. We are all different instruments and if we all perform together we can make an amazing song.

Which of our hotels are you most looking forward to visiting?

I would like to visit Inverness. You always have to go above the “Skye” to prove it`s not the limit! -bad joke-

What’s one motto that you live by and why?

Most definitely something that I repeat every day and that we have in the office is “ONE TEAM, ONE GOAL!”. It’s by working together with a clear vision of the target, that something amazing can happen. Alone you can have good reviews, together we can win awards.

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself?

I can speak 5 languages fluently but when I started working for Atlas, I only knew basic English.
