"Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking"
Deana Trowbridge
Tel: 480-302-3873

Like many in the hospitality business, Deana started in restaurants as a teenager, working as a busser, dishwasher and server. She graduated from college with an Education degree, and after a few years teaching she transitioned to Human Resources at a small restaurant chain in Minnesota. After a stint as a Manager of Ciatti's Restaurant in St. Paul, Deana joined Buffets, Inc., where she spent several years in Human Resources before leaving the cold winters and moving to California as a Staffing Manager.

She joined Gecko Hospitality in 2012, and works with Gecko Partner, Scott Butts, recruiting for the state of Arizona.

Deana enjoys developing relationships with candidates and is intuitive and passionate about finding people with talent, integrity and energy, and working with clients to find the best match.

Besides enjoying outdoor activities in the beautiful Southern California weather, Deana is a member of three book clubs, and has two wonderful and happy adult children.

Kevin Kalstad with Gecko Hospitality took all of the leg work out of identifying and pre-screening any potential candidates, allowing me to continue to focus on operations while looking for a new General Manager. We are located in a remote area and find it extremely difficult to find senior managers with the experience needed to run a facility of our volume. Within one month, Kevin had identified and put us in touch with a perfect fit for our organization. Should I have any future recruiting needs, I will not hesitate in contacting Kevin and the Gecko Hospitality organization.
