Shannon Watkins, Director of National Sales, Tharaldson Lodging Company "I have worked with Jackie Stevenson for 5 years. For the majority of that time, Jackie was one of my Area Sales Managers. Jackie was one to continuously go above and beyond for her accounts. In the time that Jackie worked for me, I received numerous letters and phone calls from her clients on her professionalism and superior work ethic. Jackie has always presented herself in the upmost professional manner. If something was requested from Jackie, it was always done on a timely basis. For approximately 6 months in 1999, Jackie stepped out of her sales manager role in order to watch over one of our hotels that was struggling. She was asked to help out and didn’t hesitate in doing so. Jackie is an extremely competitive individual, and an exceptional hard worker. Jackie was always one to “do what it takes” to land an account. I respect and admire Jackie both as an employee and a person".
