We caught up with Natalie and learned a little bit more about her life at L’Auberge and at home. Check it out:
How long have you been working with L’Auberge?
How did you get your start in the hospitality industry?
When I moved back to San Diego from college, my brother’s friend was the Front Desk Manager here at L’Auberge, and he asked me to come work for him at the front desk.
What is it about this industry that appeals to you?
I enjoy working with different people on a day to day basis. Hotels are a place for people to come and enjoy themselves and I like helping to make their experience a positive one.
What do you like about partnering with The Event Team?
You are always quick to respond and are EXTREMELY helpful. You keep me in the loop with the clients we are working with and are very professional. Very reliable!
What is your favorite San Diego restaurant or venue?
I stay in the town I live in and don’t take time to go outside of the city to check out restaurants like I should. In Escondido, I like Vintanas, Stone Brewery and Anejos.
Any hobbies/interests outside of work you’d like to share?
I have an almost 5 year old daughter, and she is my interest outside of work!
Congratulations, Natalie! Thanks to you and L’Auberge for your partnership!
