Secretary Hospitality Health & Home Economics Teacher.
- What was your favourite subject at school?
At the risk of being cliché, Home Economics. I also loved Admin – but this was due to being in a class with all my friends..
- What was your first job?
Part of the events team in House 5, One Devonshire Gardens
- Which is your favourite restaurant /hotel?
An impossible question!? But if I HAD to..
Hotel – The Wynn in Las Vegas, hands down the best buffet known to man.
Restaurant – The Violet Green in Norton, Stockton-On-Tees. The food, the staff and the décor if just perfect. If you ever have the pleasure of being in this lovely town, you NEED to go.
- How do you inspire your team
I don’t have a team – yet! As of (fingers crossed) August I will be in my probation year as a Home Economics teacher. I hope to inspire the next generation of chefs and front of house, more young people need to know how brilliant working in hospitality is.
- Which person in hospitality have you most admired / inspired you?
Can I have 2?
Firstly, without a doubt my dad – Gordon McIntyre, the founder of Hospitality Health. From a very young age he taught me how to cook and be a good human being. He still inspires me every day.
Secondly, Andrew Fairlie. My “P7 Project” was on Cooking, from the moment I got to go to Restaurant Andrew Fairlie to ask Andrew a few questions, it was confirmed this is what I wanted to do. A true gentleman and a complete master in his craft.
- How do you manage your stress levels?
I get stressed pretty easy, much to my (and everyone else’s dismay) A nap and a cold beer, in that order.
- Instagram, Twitter or Facebook – and why?
Instagram all the way. All my friends use it, and I love seeing food photos.
- If you had not gone into hospitality, where do you
think you would be now?
I genuinely have no idea. I’ve only ever wanted to be a chef..
- What did you do on your last days off?
Walked around Kelvingrove park with my 2 best friends and our mini sausage dog Stanley, then made a Sunday roast.
- What do you do to relax, to support your wellbeing?
I’ve been spending a lot less time on my phone – specifically social media, although it is great, its very easy to become consumed by other peoples “perfect” life. And now with our pup, a lot more walking which has been amazing.
