Graduating with the Class of 2014, she has worked in the hotel industry ever since! Alexandra and her husband live on Johns Island with their two dogs – Maxine and Stormi.
Check out the following Q&A with Alexandra to learn more, then head over to Zero George to see her in action.
When and where did your interest in the hospitality industry begin?
From a very young age, I was fortunate to be a part of a family that valued travel. I fell in love with the hospitality industry from the perspective of a guest, traveling all over the world. I quickly learned what I value in the guest experience and longed for the opportunity to be able to provide a curated, high-touch, memorable experience for others. What better place to do so than in the hospitality capital of the world – Charleston, SC!
How long have you been working at Zero George?
Going on four years!
What is one of your favorite memories from your time working at Zero George?
When I think of my top memories here I think of the relationships I’ve formed with some of our repeat guests. I especially love welcoming back familiar faces and the challenge of creating a unique visit for those guests each time they return! I adore Charleston so it brings me such joy to be able to share it with others.
How do you like to spend your free time in Charleston?
Any chance I get I am on the beach. As a resident of John’s Island, you can catch me at Folly Beach or Kiawah Island most Saturdays! I also love pretending to be a tourist in my own town so you may find me meandering around downtown, scoping out the best new restaurants and things to do!
