Ali is a senior at Central Michigan University and will complete her studies this fall, with a major in Hospitality and Business. She is a native of Grand Haven, MI and has always loved living by the water.
She began working in the hospitality industry at the young age of 13, for a family friend who owned Serendipity Resort in Grand Haven. She was there for 7 years and loved it. When she started college, she was unsure what she wanted to study. Then it hit her. What she has already been doing that she loved over the years, is what she should study! She knew the hospitality field was a perfect fit.
Her first internship was last summer at Stafford’s Bay View Inn. She loved the experience and fell in love with northern Michigan. She returns this summer as Event Coordinator Intern at Stafford’s Bay View Inn. She works closely with our Sales Department (link) and has already learned so much. Her favorite part: “It is exciting to be a part of the planning process of weddings and events, and being there to make sure everything runs smoothly.”
