Petra Kellie says she “kind of fell into” her new job as general manager of the Freestone Inn in Mazama. Kellie took over in late September after previous managers Chris Miller and JoAnna Howard took a job at a resort in the Bahamas.
Since stepping into her new role, Kellie has been busy managing six departments and 20 employees, as well as staffing up for the busy holiday season.
“I’m still learning my job as I go along,” Kellie said. Kellie has worked at the Freestone Inn, in various departments, since 2014 when she was hired as a server. The Freestone opened for business in 1996.
