Best Part of my Job

The best part of her job is making sure everyone is having the best stay possible and making work fun. She never wants to see a guest leave dissatisfied and will do whatever it takes to make sure they leave wanting to come back the next chance they get.

She also wants her team to enjoy the work they do because if they don’t, they probably are not taking good care of our guests.

Professional Passion

Ginger loves building great teams that take care of our guests, but even more than that, she finds the greatest fulfillment in helping others find their passion for the industry and helping them grow within it. She loves mentoring, training and advising team members along the way.

Personal Interests

Ginger loves football season, fishing, being with her family and relaxing around the firepit.  She also enjoys reading when the opportunity arises and watching her 7- year old child become her own person.

Cedar Rapids School District
