Meet JoeAnn: A Graduate of the Dorsey Schools Hotel and Restaurant Management Program
My name is JoeAnn Smith and I am a graduate of the Hotel Restaurant and Management program at Dorsey. The best part about studying at Dorsey was the people. The Hotel Restaurant and Management program is a small group so we’re just like a family. I actually had my externship at a hotel nearby and it gave the skills that I needed to get started. I had to figure out what am I going do with the rest of my life and the commercial came on and I just called. My kids are gonna be watching so I’m gonna feel like an example that it can be done, never give up on your dreams. So, I’m just elated. Happy.
