Tell me a little about where you came from and your previous experience.
I grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana. Throughout high school, I worked in various restaurants which is originally why I went onto study hospitality at Purdue University (Boiler Up). While I was at Purdue, I had a random range of experiences. I was a teaching assistant for one of the management classes, worked in operations at a Hilton Garden Inn, and then I worked as an accounting intern for the corporate headquarters of a restaurant company. I found interest in revenue management after taking a revenue management simulation capstone during my study abroad program in Australia.
How long have you worked for Kriya RevGEN, and what is it about Kriya RevGEN that you enjoy the most?
I have worked for Kriya RevGEN for almost 5 months now. What I enjoy about Kriya is how much I feel valued as an employee. For only working at the company for 5 months, I have a lot of real responsibility. I feel like when I go to work everyday, I am actively helping to contribute to the company.
What’s the most challenging part of your job?
The most challenging part of my job so far has been understanding how each hotel I revenue manage is different. A lot of my hotels are spread out in all areas across the country, in all kinds of different and dynamic markets. I have to understand how each one of these functions, what their pick up pattern is like, and what the major contributors to their markets are. However, this is also one of the most enjoyable parts of the job at the same time, as it makes it a lot more interesting!
What is the most exciting?
The most exciting part is getting to have a direct relationship with clients and being a part of a company that is always looking for ways to innovate and improve they way we do things everyday.
What’s your favorite hotel chain (or hotel)?
I would say Hilton because free breakfast at Hampton’s and if you’re a Hilton Honors Member, then free breakfast at HGIs. Like how can you beat that?! The chocolate chip waffles are to die for.
What is your favorite brand to manage?
La Quinta, because they are sweet and simple and NetRez always has your back (kinda).
What is the best taco in Dallas?
The best tacos I’ve had are breakfast tacos from Chiloso in Richardson, just outside of Dallas. There’s nothing like heading there on a Saturday morning and getting two Austin style breakfast tacos with some jalapeno ranch and a Dr. Pepper.
What’s your favorite office lunch spot?
I do not participate in the war zone that is lunch time at the office.

Peanut-butter Halo Top ice cream
What’s your favorite species of Indiana corn?
I can’t say I have one specific favorite, but I can say that I do prefer it off the cobb and sweet, with a bit of butter. Sometimes I take it popped. Then especially around Halloween, I prefer it candy style.
What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
I am dressing up as a green Crayon because it is honestly the only costume I kept from college.
