Harrison House Suites B&B, Friday Harbor
Stephanie Prima-Sarantopulos recently joined Harrison House Suites, Tucker House Inn and Coho Restaurant in the newly created position of Guest Services Coordinator.
Stephanie Prima-Sarantopulos will be involved in all the marketing and promotion activities for the two Inns and Coho Restaurant. She will serve as the in-house editor for online and print publications including the Inn’s e-newsletters, blogs and social networking initiatives. She will explore new community partnerships and create new avenues for promotion. She will serve as the head concierge for our guests and assist in other administrative responsibilities at the Inn.
“We are so fortunate to have Ms. Prima-Sarantopulos as part of our team. Her background as a publisher of a small food-related newsletter and producer of an accompanying cable television program, along with her leadership, communication and organizational skills demonstrated as a national seminar leader for Fred Pryor seminars, make her the perfect candidate for this position,” says de Freitas, the Inns’ Owner and General Manager. “And her culinary arts training give her an insider’s understanding of the hospitality business. As an active island resident, she understands the importance of working in a community. She has made the Inn’s public spaces available to local non-profit agencies for meetings free of charge.”
Prima-Sarantopulos has been a summer resident for many years, cruising the winter aboard the family sailboat with her husband, Jeff and two chocolate labs. Last summer she became a full-time San Juan Island resident. She is an active member in Soroptimists, and has volunteered for the Fire Department Thrift House, Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center, Island Rec activities, Trash to Treasures, Islands Oil Spill Association, and along with her husband, has adopted Wold Road in the Anti-Litter Initiative effort to keep the Island’s roads free of litter.
