KMA is pleased to have Janyce Volodkevich join our team of HR consultants. A native of Maine, Janyce spent most of her adult life on the West Coast, between Long Beach, California and Seattle, Washington.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in Hotel Administration from the University of Las Vegas, and embarked on a long career in the hotel industry, working for Hyatt and Kimpton hotels. Over time, she began to take on more of an HR role, learning from the ground up, and eventually became regional director of HR with Kimpton Hotels, overseeing 10 hotels in 4 states, and some 2,000 employees.
“What I like best about HR is bringing all the resources together to create the best possible work environment in an organization,” she explains.
Janyce and her husband, Bob, raised two daughters in Seattle, meanwhile watching their small city explode into a large city, with infrastructure, traffic and housing challenges. A few years ago, they purchased some land in Belgrade with the dream of returning to Maine. And once their daughters were settled—Maria an Air Force Intelligence Officer in Virginia and Katie a junior at University of Washington—the time seemed right to make the move.
Janyce loves being out in nature. She and her husband are avid travelers and have spent time in Spain, Portugal, and Italy. “We also just love spending time with our daughters, and we visit and vacation with them whenever we can.”
Welcome, Janyce. We’re thrilled to have you on board!
