Experience

  • Service Supervisor

    at Hope Homes Inc

    October 1999 - March 2010

    Ohio

    I started as support staff in a developmental disability group home. A few months later I became the assistant supervisor in that home. After a few years, my position moved to another home as the service supervisor. I then became the supervisor of another home and for a time had 3 homes that I supervised. My duties included overseeing and training staff. I was responsible for the residents' medical treatment, attending team meetings, assuring that all their programs were followed, assuring that their financial accounts were kept up to date and numerous other duties. I found the work to be very rewarding but had to leave when I became disabled.

  • Banquet Manager

    at The Executive Restaurant

    February 1996 - April 1998

    Ohio

    The Executive Restaurant was located in a hotel and I was responsible for scheduling all events held in the banquet rooms. I was responsible for staffing all meetings and banquets. I consulted with the customers about the type of event they were having and what they would require. For banquets, I helped them plan the menu they would have and whether buffet style or sit down meals. I then consulted with the chefs concerning the menu. I was responsible for staffing all events held in the banquet facility. Often we were asked to decorate the room for their event. Anything special that needed to be ordered, I would take care of it. I left in 1998 and did not work until 1999 due to a serious illness in my family.
