Ms. Alex Brandan

Event Specialist 

I graduated Carson-Newman University in 2019 with a degree in Food and Nutrition and a business minor. Ever since then I have been working in the hospitality industry as an Event Planner and Catering Coordinator. I love being creative and making beautiful things out of anything. My favorite part about planning an event is the setup and seeing all the visions come together. I am so excited that I have the opportunity to create that perfect day for everyone. 

Tina Hawks

Housekeeping Supervisor/Services

I attended Chattanooga State Community College for Management and Entrepreneurship. I have been a server, receptionist, housekeeper, tax professional, assistant manager, and a front desk hotel agent. Strategically, different people and personalities have been places in and around my life building my character to what is today joyful, kind, fun-loving, passionate, respectful and hardworking. I truly look forward to seeing you soon and having a wonderful stay.
