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.
This month, we are highlighting DeAhna Garret, our Business Development Manager!
Where Are Her Roots?
DeAhna is a San Diego native and a graduate of Kentucky Wesleyan University. She has been involved in the world of hospitality since she was 16 years old. The industry runs in her blood – her father worked as a front desk manager at a hotel and often took her to work with him. This was when she found her passion for hotels and architecture and fell in love with the friendly faces and genuine love of service coming from hotel staff. From there, she went on to carry various notable roles in the industry, including holding the title of Guest Experience Manager for the State Fair of Texas.
Why Front Desk Supply?
DeAhna loves the hospitality industry because of “the forever changing why,” she says. “Why I do it, why I push myself, why I want to learn more, and continue moving up. This is such an incredible and chaotic industry, [that’s why] people fall in love with hospitality.” She brings a dynamic perspective and driving passion to the Front Desk Supply team.
The comradery, professionalism, attention to detail, and strong reputation of Front Desk Supply drew DeAhna to our team, and she enjoys being able to bring a fresh, customer-oriented, perspective to us.
What Makes Us Excited?
DeAhna is a powerful member of the Front Desk Supply team and is revered by her coworkers and clients alike. Senior Director of Sales Operations, Jasmin Friedman-Enriquez, notes how her “unique combination of experience working in all different departments of a hotel, in addition to previously working for a hotel supplier,” is a major asset to the team. “She understands the behind-the-scenes challenges that our customers experience and is eager to create stronger ways to support our partner properties,” says Jasmin.
We are so excited to have DeAhna here and look forward to continuing in our mission to provide superior hospitality service with her by our side.

In order to keep our team healthy and safe, we have taken precautions, and all team members that are not needed in producing or warehousing activities are working from home. Further, we have built additional redundancy in our supply network. Although we have not experienced any significant delays in our supply chain, we will continue to monitor changes and will utilize alternate vendors if needed to ensure we can hold to our normal lead times. We are in close contact with our shipping partners and will advise our customers of any widespread issues affecting delivery.
