Hello! My name is Joanna and I’m thrilled to introduce myself as the new Resort Marketing Coordinator at Painter’s Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa. Where to begin!
I have lived on Vancouver Island my entire life but am still awe-stricken by the unique combination of mountain, ocean and forest views we are blessed with. Over the past few days I’ve been learning all about the history of Painter’s Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa and have toured both properties extensively. I’ve met crew members from all departments and am humbled by how many names I need to learn! Everyone has been very kind and welcoming, assuring me that I will indeed love my experience here. I’d heard wonderful things about Oak Bay Marine Group as an employer and need no further convincing that this indeed true, as an astounding amount of crew are return employees.
I come to this position with a background in media communications and hospitality industry experience. I simply can’t wait to capture more special, exciting, one-in-a-million-experiences that occur here every year. Caylin may be half my size, but trust me; she has some pretty big shoes to fill!
Whether you plan on visiting Painter’s Lodge or April Point Resort & Spa this season or not, I invite you to check in with me often and see what we’re up to. You may catch a glimpse of killer whales, your favourite bartender, or even a rare 40 lb. tyee.
Check in tomorrow for an introduction to some of the 2012 crew.
See you in a few,
