“I fell in love with the potential I saw during my first tour of the campus – 5 years later, it has been awesome to see the potential become reality. I love serving the diverse group of guests and giving someone a tour, sharing the sacred space and amenities we have to offer. “
“I love the variety of groups that come to Pallottine to find a peaceful place to reflect. Every day I get to meet new and interesting people and to help them meet the goal of their stay. Whether it is a day-long business meeting or a weeklong retreat, I work with the facilitator to determining how best utilize our space, our staff and our grounds to set the mood for a unique experience. When a group leaves Pallottine Renewal Center happy, I am happy.”
Jen Krehmeyer, Director of Food Service
“When I first came here 2 years ago for my interview I saw multiple signs from my Grandmother in heaven. She was telling me this was where I needed to be. Since then I have realized God gave me talents beyond my previous comprehension. This is what He made me for. Cooking is not a job to me; it’s my playtime! I’m always telling my staff “Let’s go play!” We have so much fun being creative and tasting new things. I feel truly blessed to be a part of something so amazing!”
Kevin Tierney, Facilities Maintenance Supervisor
“I have been at PRC since December 2013. It is challenging and gratifying, maintaining and updating a 50 year old building. Our team is innovating and imaginative and has helped me improve the building, grounds, and retreatants experience. I love my job.”
Teri Kropp, Lead Housekeeper
“It is a gift to be a part of Pallottine Renewal Center – I don’t feel like it is a job. I was meant to be here to assure our building is clean and comfortable for our guests. And here I am, 9 years later, meeting greeting new and lots of returning guests. “
