HOW DID YOU COME TO WORK WITH OUR COMPANY? TELL US YOUR STORY.
I was hired by 360 Hotel Group as a bookkeeper in June 2002. I worked in a three-person accounting team that was in charge of three hotels including the Ramada Inn (now Hotel Nexus), Hampton Inn & Suites and Best Western Cambridge Inn, as well as the Berkshire Grill Restaurant in Seattle. I also helped to hand the closure of a construction company that had built several condominiums.
I was promoted to Accounting Manager/M3 Specialist in May 2008 when we changed accounting systems and moved our corporate office to Lynnwood. I was an integral part in the setup and implementation of their new web-based accounting system, now called M3 Accounting Core.
I became the Assistant Controller when the previous Controller, who had worked for Mr. Damji over 28 years, announced her retirement in 2013. When she left the company in February 2016, I became the Corporate Controller for 360 Hotel Group Ltd, which owns and manages six hotels, as well as the parent corporations and several partnerships.

I’m a huge Seattle sports fan, with season tickets to both the Seahawks and the Mariners. I also participate in the Amateur Pool Players Association (APA) and have competed in tournaments locally as well as in Lincoln City, OR and Las Vegas, NV. My most important role is as a grandmother, raising my grandson who is now in 8th grade.
