To be a leader in the hospitality supply industry, we need a team of the best and brightest behind the scenes. At Front Desk Supply, we are meticulous in our search for top talent – people with a passion for hospitality and a customer-first mentality. We want to highlight some of the amazing members of our team to give you a glimpse into the inner workings of Front Desk Supply and how we bring you superior branded hotel and motel supplies.
This month, we are highlighting team member Desiree Enriquez. We spoke with Desiree about her background, her passions, and why she’s proud to be a member of the Front Desk Supply Team.
Desiree, tell us a bit about your background.
Desiree: I grew up in Corona, CA with a tight knit and supportive family. When it came time to head off to college, I made the cross-country move to attend Penn State for my undergraduate degree, which I am still working on!
Why Front Desk Supply?
Desiree: Prior to working at FDS, I held a full-time job at a local fast-food restaurant to support my educational expenses. When I met Mark, he recognized the potential in a fellow Penn Stater and graciously offered me a role that had more flexibility so that I could better balance work and education.
In the time I have spent at FDS my role has evolved quite a bit. What began as a small role in generating leads for our sales team has since expanded to include optimizing our online store, providing graphic design services for customers and FDS alike, and so much more. This constant evolution in my position really provides a feeling that I am contributing to the company. Not a day goes by where I don’t feel like I’ve helped my coworkers in some way!
What’s the most rewarding part of your job?
Desiree: Every day at FDS brings something new and exciting to the table. As someone who considers themselves a jack-of-all-trades, I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to fully explore that.
Most recently, we have put quite a bit of effort into updating and modernizing our brand. From new graphics content to high-quality product photos, we have curated a fresh feel for FDS that we are all very excited to share with our customers.
Tell us some fun facts about yourself!
- I recently adopted a kitten! He is the first pet I have taken by myself and I am loving it.
- I used to save all the key cards from every hotel room I ever stayed in. Little did I know I would be swimming in hotel keys (and more) in my future!
- Thanks to my previous job, I am an expert in grilling chicken to perfection and rolling the best burritos.
