All About Sam in 6 Questions:

  Why do you want to work at Odysys? The key selling factors of Odysys were the business model, leadership style, relaxed environment and positive team dynamics. I wanted to become part of a company in which I can stand behind their core values, both internally and externally.    What is your favorite Breakfast Food? Eggs benedict and a bloody mary. I go out to breakfast for this at least once a month.    Cat or Dog or Goldfish? Dogs for sure! I have a Bluetick Coonhound/Aussie Mix named Glitch.    What is your ideal afternoon drink? Blueberry Mint Humm Kombucha.   What is your perfect hotel retreat? Next to a body of water, but close to a large city with a West Coast Swing social dance nearby.   What hotel are you dying to stay at?  Greenlake Guest House in Seattle has been on my mind ever since I first saw it. Right on Green Lake, and 10 minutes from Seattle, the location is perfect! Plus, the Century Ballroom is just a short distance away and has the most beautiful venue to swing dance at.
