Welcome New Staff and Good-bye to Old Friends

Kelli, Johathan & Trisha Kelli, Johathan & Trisha Robin Rosenberg

This fall we say good-bye to several front desk staff and hello to some new friendly faces!

Stephanie left in late August for her second year at Fort Lewis College. Stephanie started her career with OLT as a 16-year-old intern and recipient of the Eiseman Grant. After her first summer, Stephanie was hired to work the front desk and has been an integral part of our family for several years! It has been our joy to watch her grow into an accomplished and beautiful young woman. We are so proud of Steph and wish her the very best for this coming year. She promises to visit often!

Zoe, who has been working reception for the past year and a half, left in September. She has committed the coming year to working with at risk teens as part of a wilderness program. She will be backpacking throughout Utah, seeing some incredible landscapes and helping the planet by being an awesome mentor. We all wish her the very best!

Diane has been coming to the hot springs for almost 20 years and has been volunteering as a Bat Host, Discovery Host and Ranch Hand. Diane accepted a seasonal position on the front desk this spring. She also volunteered at the Everson Ranch and was a great help in the garden. She will be leaving in October to travel the world! We wish her safe travels and look forward to her return in the spring.

In addition, Garden Manager Brian, his wife Dru and son Brooke will be leaving the end of September after our harvest celebration. Thank you Brian and Dru for all the beautiful additions you made to the Everson Garden this summer. We wish you and your family all the best!

Three new staff members join our family, Jonathan and Kelli, on the front desk and Trisha in housekeeping. All are local, have excellent customer service experience, friendly personalities and great smiles. We are excited to have them join our staff and the OLT family. Please stop and say hello next time you visit or call for a reservation!
