What makes the Shadow Lawn Inn experience so unique? The People who work here, of course!
Here are some of the people in our Shadow Lawn Family...Rachel Scoville is no stranger to Shadow Lawn Inn. She finished her internship here last year, between her 1st and 2nd year at Holland College's Culinary Institute of Canada in PEI. A recent graduate, she is back as a full-time member of our kitchen team.
Shown here in a rare moment of relaxation on the patio, Rachel, a Hampton resident, shared that she always cooked as a kid and loved it. When it came time to decide what to do after high school, the decision was easy. She hopes to continue her education in diatetics someday.
New Faces at the Inn...
You'll see a few new faces at the Inn this summer. Our summer students, Louise Chiasson, Will MacGillivray, Sara Shillington and Tess Robart
will be looking after our customers along side our familiar Shadow Lawn Inn family!
We are happy to announce that our Red Seal Chef, Nancy Fox
has accepted the position of Assistant Manager of Shadow Lawn Inn. Although she will still be advising in the kitchen, you'll be sure to see more of Nancy as she will be spending more time in the front of the house with our patrons.
When Kathy Smith is not at Benjamin's Books advising customers on wonderful children's books, you can find her at the basketball court, the hockey rink or in the basement of the Inn. Kathy handles all things accounting here at Shadow Lawn Inn.
Kathy's background as a business teacher has prepared her well for the challenge of keeping the Inn in good order everyday.
Customer service is her thing. Joan Green
has worked in the retail industry for most of her career, notably as a manager at Canadian Tire where, she says, it's a great team to work for and where she honed her customer service skills.
Joan, originally from Bathurst, has been a Quispamsis resident for over 30 years. Her husband, Brian Green, is one of the managers at Kennebecasis Drugs. She has two grown daughters, Laura and Breanne.
I'm surprised our Head of Housekeeping, Linda Hallman, isn't basking on a beach somewhere. Hot weather is her thing, and there isn't much of that around here lately!
Linda loves being where the sun shines and where there's a sandy beach. In fact, she's off to Florida next week.
Linda has been with Shadow Lawn Inn for thirteen years. With our renovations well underway, Linda is working feverishly on all the details to get our rooms ready to unveil! She describes herself as a mean gardener. Watch out flowers, here comes Linda!
Yes, that's a load of fresh baking, warm from the oven, baked lovingly by one of our very hard workings chefs! Angela Cookson has the perfect name for her profession, don't you think?
Hailing from Halifax, Angela is an NSCC grad who worked for a season at the Keltic Lodge in Cape Breton, and in France, in the Alps! When Angela isn't working - and she's always working - she likes to read.
Meet Charlie Saunders
Charlie is a dedicated, reliable employee. He has been with the Inn for over 14 years.
No matter the situation, Charlie can solve it with his calm, methodical approach. His attention to detail is appreciated as evidenced by our well-kept gardens in the summertime.
Charlie is married to Eleanor and is a proud father to Stephanie who is in her second year at Saint Mary’s University.
Meet Colleen Shaw.
She has been working at Shadow Lawn Inn for almost 5 years. Colleen has lived in Quispamsis for 30 years and has 3 sons, 4 sons if you count her husband. Oops, did she say that?
She loves going for walks with her sons’ dogs. She says they keep her in shape! Colleen loves listening to music and looks forward to going to her hometown whenever she can to see her family on the Miramichi. She also loves camping in the summer. She enjoys knitting and someday looks forward to traveling around Canada. They might even try down South, maybe!
Something most people don't know about Colleen?
She won a poster contest in Grade 5 for depicting the future as a image of the world with a larger computer on it! Our resident visionary!
