My name is Kelly Hopper and I am currently the 2nd Assistant Superintendent at Columbia Country Club in Columbia, Missouri. I have an Associates Degree in Horticulture to go along with over ten seasons of work experience in the athletic turf industry. Prior to taking my current position, I was the Desk Manager for a Quality Inn and Suites in Danville, Illinois. My time as Desk Manager gave me invaluable experience in the art of proper customer service and complaint resolution. Though I am happy in my current position as an Assistant Superintendent, I would love an opportunity to change career branches within the Horticulture job tree. The chance to work in a new and exciting industry would be too much to pass up. I am an extremely hardworking and dedicated person. I have letters of recommendation from former and current employers to go along with other business and personal references. I would be more than happy to provide these to any interested parties upon request. Despite my skill set aligning more with the Horticultural side of the business, I am open to any job that would get my foot in the door for one of the fastest growing industries in the country. I also understand that relocating would be necessary for any of these possible opportunities, this would not be an issue for me. I am always excited by the prospect of new employment in a new place. I do apologize for the vague job descriptions, but I will go into greater detail about my responsibilities and duties in the employment section of my resume.
