EDUCATION

I’m currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science at the University of Texas at San Antonio.

 

HOW DID YOU GET INTO YOUR FIELD?

I was blessed to have gotten a part time job as a hostess at The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch, while going to school. I quickly fell in love with the Food & Beverage industry and grew from there.

 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WITH CORDILLERA RANCH?

3 ½ years

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ASPECT OF WORKING IN THE HILL COUNTRY?

The views are incredible; I am honored to work in one of the most beautiful places in Texas.  I always share with guests that I have worked here for 3 ½ years and I never get tired of the scenery.

 

WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES/INTERESTS?

Cooking, spending time with my family, golfing, and fishing.

 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE SPORT?

Football, I am an avid Green Bay Packer fan!

 

FAVORITE SPORTING EVENT YOU’VE ATTENDED?

My dad took my sister, Becky, and I to watch him play in a Fed-Ex Champions Tour Pro-Am in Austin.  Golf was always an activity that brought the three of us together and it was great to watch him play in that atmosphere.  We also had the opportunity to meet Tom Kite, who won the 1991 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach where my dad was the Director of Golf Course Operations.

 

FAVORITE QUOTE?

“It’s good to have an end to journey toward; but it is journey that matters, in the end.”  Ernest Hemmingway

 

FAVORITE MOVIE AND WHY?

The Great Gatsby would have to be one of mine.  Also one of my favorite literary works, I admire the theme of hope and the fact that the story is not concluded with a typical “happy ending”, but rather a realistic one in which Nick learns go on, valuing the lessons learned along the way.

 

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR MOST REWARDING EXPERIENCE IN YOUR BUSINESS?

This business is rewarding on a daily basis; whether you helped a guest create the most memorable day of their life, or produced the perfect wine pairing for a member’s entrée.  I find that the level in which you enjoy what you do will directly affect how rewarding even the smallest triumphs are.

 

Favorite aspect or feature at Cordillera Ranch?

That would definitely be the diversity the clubs have to offer.  We have menus, activities, and outings that can cater to most any lifestyle!

Fish Stocking in Swede Creek Lake

Swede Creek Lake is an outstanding resource and amenity at Cordillera Ranch, and during my 16 years on the Ranch, we have watched the fish populations remain fairly healthy. In 2015, we did a fish survey in Swede Creek Lake to get an estimate of the health and numbers of fish and that report found a very healthy population of bass and several species of sunfish. Over the years, we have caught the following species out of Swede Creek Lake: largemouth or black bass, Guadalupe or spotted bass, rock bass, red breast sun fish, long ear sunfish, green sunfish, bluegill, channel catfish, striped bass and a few turtle species that include the red-ear slider, Texas river cooter and softshell turtle. We have also seen nutra rat and beaver using the lake as home.
