Christa Dahlke

I hired Christy in 1992 at at the Courtyard Marriott to be the Operations Supervisor supporting my new role managing 2 departments (front desk and restaurant). She began her management career by taking on my role as Operations Manager when I moved into a travelling consulting role a year later. That was the beginning of a successful management and leadership career with Marriott Corporation and beyond that Christy still has. She started out back then being responsible for 30+ employees, a 24×7 hotel operations, and directly impacted our Southcenter Courtyard by Marriott hotel’s reputation for low turnover and high guest satisfaction scores for many years ahead. As her career has grown and evolved, we have kept in touch over this past 20 years and have become colleagues and friends. Christy is always concerned about her clients and fellow employees in empowering them to reach their goals. Her dedication and work ethic is second to none. She also makes the effort to keep in touch with people as she has with me over these past 20 years. She is caring, loyal, smart, driven and will be honest in every situation. I would work with Christy again in a second if she would ever move back to Seattle. You can feel confident you’ll have a partner by working with Christy.
