My name is Alison and I've been working in the Philadelphia area for about six years now. I'm a very active person and love to keep busy, so I prefer restaurants with a high turn-over rate and large sections. I've been known to work very diligently and have impressed many floor managers by staying calm under heavy pressure. I enjoy making my guests feel welcome and I like making them laugh. I'm also known for having a bit of dry sense of humor which I found certain groups can appreciate! I also enjoy talking to people about beer and wine, and have a pretty strong handle on my knowledge of craft beers.
In the past, I have worked mostly in late-night bar settings and would like to switch it up a bit, so I'm looking for places with a stronger focus on food service.

My Dream Job is to be performing constantly in any of Philadelphia's premier dance companies!
