Mattoon native finds her niche in the hospitality industry
Choosing to attend school at Eastern was an easy decision for me as I am a native of Mattoon, IL. However, I didn’t start out as hospitality major. I began my education at EIU as journalism major but soon learned that was not my passion. While attending EIU, I was working at the local Comfort Suites and it was not long until I changed majors and immediately knew I had found my niche in the hospitality industry. From the first course I took in the area of hospitality in FCS with Dr. Brooks, I met professors with industry knowledge and also made great friends with similar interests who helped me start my career path.
