“I’m thrilled to be a part of the Glenwood Hot Springs team. It’s a venerable property with so much history and now with the addition of the beautiful Spa of the Rockies, it’s my job and my pleasure to represent it as the Sales and Marketing Director,” said Ann.
Helping Ann in her duties is Kerstin Brixey, Sales Assistant. Kerstin recently relocated from Portland, Oregon where she was the Executive Sales Assistant for The Paramount Hotel, A Coast Hotel. While attending the International Air and Hospitality Academy she worked for the Downtown Portland Embassy Suites and Cedar Ridge Conference and Retreat Center.
