Our phones are ringing off the hook! Our Employee of Month Jeanine answers and calm prevails. Jeanine has worked at The St. James Tearoom for 12 years and knows many of our guests by their phone voice. She is the anchor in a sometimes stormy sea of reservations, a master juggler of numbers, placing our guests in the proper seating area and communicating their needs and desires to the rest of our staff in the ongoing effort to provide excellent service by valuing, honoring and appreciating each and every guest we are blessed to serve, through the art of tea, in an atmosphere of grace, civility, beauty and gentility. Truly Jeanine has embraced the mission of The St. James Tearoom and her husband of 36 years, Tom, a military career man, as well as their 6 sons and 2 daughters-in-law can testify that it is a beautiful way of life for all that are surrounded by it.
Jeanine’s teammates know that she sets them up for success, paving the way for them to excel by her example of hard work with a gentle spirit that is a joy to be around, this is not the first time Jeanine has been chosen by her peers to represent them as Employee of the Month!
