With varied experience in fields such as Retail Management, Hospitality Operations, and Insurance Sales, owner Amy Wagner is experienced in many aspects of business operations that can be a mystery to small business owners. Read more about Amy’s experience below.
Amy attended Mount Ida College in Newton, MA and obtained a degree in Interiors Furnishings Merchandising. While living in CT and working in a corporate atmosphere in Retail Design and Management, it became apparent that a transfer out of state was necessary to further her career. With a newfound love of Southeastern CT, Amy decided a career change was in the cards and not a move out of her new hometown. After becoming licensed in Accident, Life, and Health Insurance she found herself attracted to the Hospitality professions.
In 2004, Amy began a career in Boutique Hotel service and later moved to management and ultimately Director of Operations. In the DOO role she acted as a Project Manager, implementing a multitude of software programs and operational processes. She became an expert in Revenue Management, consistently meeting and exceeding sales goals. Amy also acted as Director of Sales and maintained the property website, online marketing, and job listings. She has also dabbled in the restaurant and event management fields including organizing multiple day fundraising events, galas, and acted as treasurer for a local non-profit merchant association.
