August 2017 – Chris

August Employee of the Month, Chris, our gentleman in the Market, has such a relaxed demeanor you would never know just how hard he works except for the fact that he gets his tasks done before you know it. He is able and super willing to help out wherever he can: in the tea station brewing tea, in the dish station washing dishes, in the butler’s pantry plating food, and certainly in the Market, where he has devoted himself to learning the art of creating displays. On top of all that, Chris attained the title of Tea Master this month, perfecting the brewing of our teas and learning and sharing the merits of Darjeeling tea.

Chris is always striving to improve his guest connections by appreciating and welcoming people as they enter The St. James Tearoom and cultivating relationships as he confidently invites others to share in this sanctuary, a place to relax and refresh, out of the ordinary. Thank you, Chris, for leading the way for us!
