Passing the Torch

Painter's Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa - April 30, 2014

“Who here thinks they have the best job?” the administrator of our Worldhost Service training asked us just last week here at Painter’s Lodge. Though many of our staff feel the same way, I have to tell you—I believe I do! My name is Kali and I’m pleased to say that I will be devoting my summer to covering the daily action and special events as Marketing Coordinator for both Painter’s Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa.

I firstly would like to thank Travis, who held this position last year and has recently moved on to a similar role with Oak Bay Marine Group. Travis has spent the week showing me the “ropes” so-to-speak, and I look forward to working with him to provide real-time updates on everything you need to know about Painter’s Lodge and April Point.

A bit about myself—I am originally from Campbell River, where I held my very first job at a local fishing resort. I worked seasonally while attending Business school in Victoria, B.C. After graduating, I continued to pursue what comes most natural to me, which is welcoming guests and showcasing Vancouver Island’s spectacular sights and happenings. While various adventures had me living overseas and in other parts of Canada, I was continually drawn to my breathtaking seaside hometown. And, well, the rest was history.

Campbell River, Quadra Island, and both Resorts truly have it all, and I can’t wait to show off our remarkable destination. We’ve got endless events and activities planned this 2014 season at Painter’s Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa, so I invite you to join me and the rest of the Crew, whether you’re following us online, dropping by for lunch, or visiting for a week-long vacation.

We are Opening our doors tomorrow (yikes!), May 1st,  for the 2014 Season! Check back with me soon to see how it all unfolds. 

All the best,

Kali
