Where did your journey begin Kerry?

I have pretty much always worked in hospitality, my first job was as a porter in a large hotel. I then moved to London for 14 years and worked in some lovely townhouse hotels before joining the Metropolitan Police for four years, that was a slightly different type of customer service! I did a stint at Intercontinental Sydney before moving back to New Zealand to work at all three of The Robertson Lodges, before the irresistible offer came up to jump to the competition at Huka Lodge.
