From Nursing to Hospitality “By Accident”
Cassandra Arndt, a 2017 Sheboygan Falls High School graduate, is a confident Lakeshore Technical College Hospitality Management program student looking at a bright future. How she got to this point is a bit of “an accident.”
In the fall of 2017, while working as a Certified Nursing Assistant and enrolled as a Nursing program student at LTC, Cassandra got into an accident which caused her to stop working and take time off from school. Ready to get back to work in March 2018, she accepted a position working the front desk at the Inn on Woodlake in Kohler – a position she enjoyed so much, it led her to change career paths.
“Once I started at Woodlake, it didn’t take me long to realize that I wasn’t ‘just working a front desk.’ I saw a career in what I was doing, and I decided to leave nursing behind and learn all I could about the hospitality industry,” said Cassandra. That included going back to LTC and enrolling in the Hospitality Management program.
“My favorite thing about working at Woodlake is that I get to interact so much with our guests and help them enjoy their stay as much as possible,” said Cassandra. “I also learn so much from my coworkers, especially my manager, Ashleigh Yonke. She has given me exposure to many different areas of the hospitality industry, and has been a huge factor in my decision to make this a career.”
Cassandra expects to graduate in May 2020, and then take advantage of the Lake to Lake guaranteed transfer agreement between LTC and Lakeland University to earn her bachelor’s degree while continuing to work at Kohler properties.
In her free time, Cassandra enjoys spending time with family, including her nieces and nephew, and volunteering with the Literacy Council of Sheboygan where she teaches English as a second language to adult learners.
Cassandra is a confident student today, though that wasn’t always the case. In high school she was rather shy, and credits her hospitality experience with helping her become more confident when communicating with people. Going to school while working, volunteering, and making time for her family also helped her improve her time management skills.
Cassandra’s advice for anyone considering a career in hospitality: “Don’t be afraid to try different things. Taking that first step can be the hardest, but you need to take that step to get started.”
