Meet our Interns!
Meet our Interns!
Every year, Woodloch is happy to welcome interns from all across the country who are pursuing careers in the hospitality industry. We’d like to introduce you to this year’s cast…
Cassandra is going to be joining us this summer as an intern in the Human Resources department at Woodloch. She will be learning the trade of employment, payroll operations, benefits management, and more. She attends Bloomsburg University, where she will be obtaining her degree in December in Business and Human Resource Management.
Cassandra has been “classically” Woodloch trained- she started working as a teenager in our Housekeeping department at Woodloch Springs. She since worked at our main property as well as at our spa sister property, The Lodge at Woodloch. “Woodloch means a lot to me because it opened me up to many different employment opportunities,” says Cassandra. “When I started working here so young I was nervous, as it was my first job. However, the employees and management made me feel so welcomed and taught me the hardworking skills that I have today.”
“Most of my family also works here and has been here for over 10 years,” she continues. “I returned here for the internship because I remember the warm hospitality feeling and the great feeling of making the guest happy and joyful. Everyone was and is always smiling, even on their worst days. The positive energy around me makes the work environment a great place to work!”
Coming all the way from Clemson University is Kerriann. She is pursuing a degree in Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management and will be a senior this fall. She will be joining in on all of the fun and games of the Social Department this year.
Originally from Boonton Township, New Jersey, Kerriann spent summers nearby and of course, fell in love with the area. She’s new to the Woodloch family, but like she says, “I have always heard about what great experiences people have had at Woodloch!” Now, she gets to be a part of it all!
Dan was an intern last year in our Marketing Department and is back for a second summer. This fall he will be entering his junior year at Penn State University majoring in Marketing and minoring in Digital Media Trends and Analytics.
Growing up in the area, Dan viewed Woodloch Resort as a staple in the local community. Throughout his time with us, he has gained experience in data analytics, campaign strategy, and brand management. He admires the resort’s commitment to making every guest feel at home and loves being a member of the marketing team.
Dominique is a Baking & Pastry Student and Food Service Management Student at Johnson & Wales Univeristy in Providence, Rhode Island. Born and raised in Coventry, Rhode Island. The University recommended Woodloch to her.
She currently works at The Lodge at Woodloch. “It is such an amazing place to work at. I highly recommend it to Baking & Pastry and Culinary students. The workers there are all amazing, especially Chef Shannon & Chef Bill. They strive me to be a better baker and person. I am forever grateful with the opportunities that the Lodge has given me.”
Abby is interning with us this fall to complete her degree in Recreation, Park and Tourism Management from Penn State. She is working and learning in both the Outdoor Adventure Department at The Lodge at Woodloch and the Social Department at Woodloch Pines.
Abby gets to do the things she loves every day and share them with our guests. Her love of the outdoors and making people smile has made her fall in love with her internship here at Woodloch. Growing up in Northeast Pennsylvania, she has always known of the reputation Woodloch has and is excited to spend a semester with us!
