Kelly-Ann Bursts onto the Scene!
Well hello to all you Dragon Hotel fans out there! My name is Kelly-Ann and I have been working at the hotel since 24th August 2010 as the Administrative Manager, a task that I have taken on with my usual gusto and enthusiasm!
Let me tell you a little bit about me; I hail from the ever expanding Broadlands Estate in Bridgend where I reside with my three beautifully behaved children (A term I use loosely). I have been with my long suffering husband Justin for 8 years, during this time I have successfully managed to wear him down to an acceptable level of compliance and hardly ever need to resort to torturous methods to get my own way.
In my spare time I knit socks for gerbils and loiter around zebra crossings waiting to assist the frail and aged people across the road and campaigning for World Peace. I am a self confessed Obsessive Compulsive, and seem to cause my colleagues in accounts much amusement with my constant cleaning and organising and inability to put a cup down without a coaster (this being just the tip of a very large ice berg).
Since starting at the hotel I have been fortunate enough to meet some lovely people and share an office with Helen the Accounts Manager and Kelly the Accounts Assistant, both of which are inspirational, strong, bright women (I’m easily bribed, invoices in the post ladies).
On a more serious note I am happy to say that I have been made to feel very welcome by all of the staff here and feel like I’ve been here for years! I am also most grateful to Helen for introducing me to the wild, wonderful, calorie laden world of Starbucks!
I have been involved in the HR Administration for many years but had never worked in a Hotel before and I must say that I love every minute of the hustle and bustle of people coming and going.
I must say that whilst I find having a Health spa on site a fantastic bonus it is proving to be rather detrimental to the health of my bank balance and my husbands blood pressure as I have become a huge fan of Michelle our resident Beauty Therapist, her ability to make me snore during a facial is amazing and I am now hopelessly hooked on Gel Nails and eye lash extensions (I hope my Husband doesn’t read this!)
I am a huge animal lover and a sucker for a sob story hence the fact that I am the proud owner of six horses, nine cats, three dogs, two gerbils, a monosyllabic teenage boy, a cheeky monkey of an eight year old, a busy bee daughter and a partridge in a pear tree!
Well that’s all about me for now, join me for the next chapter in the trilogy; “Admin v Accounts 2 – Your number’s up”.
