Meet the Team: Jac(k)ie Wright

1. Where are you originally from?
I’m originally from Phoenix, Arizona! I love the heat and swimming pools.

2. What is your favorite food?
My favorite food is soup. I love all kinds: broth/cream-based, noodle bowls/ramen, veggie/meat.

3. Where is your favorite bar in Dallas?
I have a few: British Beverage Co./Eastwood/Truth and Alibi, The Ginger Man for trivia.

4. What do you miss the most about home?
I miss the mountains/nature aspect. Dallas is a little flat for me but Arizona had tons of outdoor activities to do.

5. You’re part of the Big Red family. What do you miss the most about Cornell?
I miss living so close to my friends at Cornell! Everyone is spread out across the country, a few are outside of the country and while it makes for fun trips, they are so far away.

6. How long have you worked for Kriya RevGEN?
I have worked at Kriya RevGEN since July 2018.

7. Did you have any previous experience?
In the past I have worked in restaurants – so not so much on the hotel side. However, I took a revenue management class at Cornell before this.

8. What made you want to join the RevGEN team?
I wanted to work for a smaller company where you could reach out to all of your team members for help/assistance, grow quickly within the company, and learn things/take initiative where you see fit.

9. What is your favorite office lunch spot?
PhoXpress is my favorite!

10. Favorite hotel chain/brand to manage?
I like IHG’s best. They have a lot of intuitive functionality within their systems.

11.  Tell us about your name, Jacie.
Growing up/other than my work email I go by Jacie – It’s a nickname. My full name is Jacqueline, named after my Grandmother, but she sometimes spelled her name Jacie and in elementary school, there was already a girl named Jackie so I never put a K in mine.

12. What genre of music sets the mood for your workday?
I like pop/EDM with words in general, country while I’m driving to work so I don’t get road rage.

13. Name one thing about yourself that most people wouldn’t guess.
I have ‘scrapbooked’ for the last 10 years. I have basically kept every ticket to every plane ride/concert/game day etc. I also keep wristbands (clubs/fairs/bars/etc.), photo booth strips, handwritten notes, fun mementos, and flattened pennies. Every time I travel in the US I make sure I bring 2 quarters and a penny for those machines. I tape these to pages in large binders for each significant life period. I have one for middle school, high school, college, and post-grad so far.

14. Hobbies?
I like working out, hiking, swimming, cooking, going out/dancing, and anything dog-related.

15. The most challenging and most rewarding part of your job?
Most challenging: prioritizing the multitude and variety of tasks we have to do each day
Most rewarding: seeing that gradual payoff from strategy decisions and connecting to clients about where they want to see their property go.
