Ayla Allenbrings with her, experience and passion for the hospitality industry. Born and raised in Flagstaff, she graduated from Northern Arizona University with her B.S in Business Marketing. She was introduced to the Food and Beverage industry at the age of 15, hosting and bussing tables at her mom’s restaurant. She continued in the industry throughout college, working her way up the ranks to eventually run the front of house operations and coordinate event planning for Flagstaff’s leading and exclusive, Continental Country Club. Among many other things, travel is one of Ayla’s strongest passions. Outside of the office she enjoys the same things that most do here, being outdoors and enjoying what Jackson and the greater Teton area has to offer. Ayla tries to explore a new place every chance she can from powder, to sunshine and everything in between.
