Dee Dee Baggitt

Dee Dee has walked a mile in many people’s shoes. She started from the bottom and worked her way up within Rosen Hotel & Resorts. Along this journey, she’s learned as much as possible about various jobs and departments, which helps her every day in understanding others and gaining their respect. “I believe you should treat everyone with respect no matter what their position. I have always been an even tempered caring person and a great listener. That makes it easy for people to open up to me and in return I will do what I can to assist them.”

What Others Say:

“Throughout the years that I have been working with Dee Dee either under the same umbrella or indirectly, I find her to be the most caring, compassionate, level-headed person with great passion for her job as well as for her associates and co-workers. One important highlight that I truly admire about her and that I still cherish as it helped me through many difficult hurdles that I had to overcome is her positive attitude and calm demeanor. She is always committed to finding a solution and seeing the silver lining when the going gets tough. All I can say is that she is a great person with a heart of gold.”
