A message from Tanya:

Today it's all about me rolling back the curtain of memories and saying Thank You as it is said a heart that is Faithful, Grateful and Thankful is a heart that is blessed beyond measures.

Today I am blessed and proud to say that I have dedicated 240 months, 1,040 weeks, 7,300 days, 175,300 hours, 10,520, 640 minutes to the last of the true exotics " Beaches Turks and Caicos Resort"

20 years ago I was hired to fill a vacant position at this establishment and today I count it a privilege to recognize this as a milestone which took me on a journey of self evaluation, empowering, motivating, inspiring, growing, experiences and embracing myself for such a journey in my career. Within the past 20 years I was given the opportunities 8 different positions which I have worked my way up to where I am today. The following positions were:-

Administrative Assistant Sales and Weddings

Executive Administrative Assistant - General Managers

Banquet Coordinator- Sales and Weddings

Senior Sales Executive- Sales Office

Senior Sales Manager- Sales Office

Resort Sales Manager- Sales Office

Director of Sales, Groups and Conventions (current)

In between holding down all the above positions, I also took all the opportunities that was presented to me of upgrading myself educationally and got some extensive on the job training and did some courses with Sandals University and obtained the following.

Associates Degree in Hospitality &Tourism

Certified Train the Trainer

Certified Customer Service Management

Associates Degree in Business Studies

Professional Diploma in Leadership

Professional Bachelor Degree in Hospitality and Tourism

Professional Masters Degree in Hospitality and Tourism

I have also completed other certificate courses with the LMS program through our Learning and Development department as well.

Not only did I soar in holding down positions...
