Hometown: 

New Orleans, Louisiana.

Role at The Stockade Bed and Breakfast:

I’m the innkeeper, so what isn’t my role at The Stockade?

Favorite part of working at a B&B:

Meeting all of the guests, because they come from all parts of the world and they bring all sorts of interesting and wonderful lifestyles with them. I enjoy interacting with them and hearing their stories about their travels, their hobbies, their families. I often live vicariously through them; if they have a favorite travel destination, I often look it up and see if it could be part of my next trip.

Favorite breakfast food:

Bananas Foster Pain Perdu, if it’s made right.

Shemica

Hometown: Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Role at The Stockade Bed and Breakfast: I’ve been working here for eleven years. I do housekeeping, but really, I do a bit of everything.

Favorite part of working at a B&B: The people I meet on the job. Never a dull moment!

Favorite breakfast food: Pancakes

Hometown: Born and raised in Baton Rouge!

Role at The Stockade Bed and Breakfast: I’m the mysterious part-time employee that most people don’t meet, since I work mostly from home. I do paperwork. I handle billing, and look over Janice’s shoulder. Mostly secretarial duties, including some bookkeeping.

Favorite part of working at a B&B: The wonderful breakfast aroma that’s always filtering through The Stockade Bed and Breakfast.

Favorite breakfast food: Eggs Benedict, because my husband makes it with love. He’ll poach the eggs and cut the bacon. But usually I just eat cereal.

Role at The Stockade Bed and Breakfast: Marketing Director.

Favorite part of working at a B&B: The people, without a doubt! The guests make it interesting because they come from all over the world to overnight at The Stockade. The staff works well to achieve one goal: a satisfied guest. And the innkeeper is motivated and charming!

Favorite breakfast food: Grits and grillades.
