Stephanie Cuny is a new face in USITT's office in Syracuse, New York, joining the organization after more than seven years in the hospitality industry. Ms. Cuny, a Syracuse native, most recently worked for the Doubletree Hotel Syracuse, formerly the Wyndham, where her job title was executive assistant to the general manager, but where her duties encompassed a wide variety of interactions with staff, vendors, and guests.

"I'm excited to be with USITT and have the opportunity to expand my knowledge base," Ms. Cuny said. At the hotel, she worked with members of all departments and even spent a year as chair of the hotel's Quality Team, coordinating programming within the organization to ensure quality service.

While working in these areas, Ms. Cuny found great job satisfaction in the accounting world of general ledger codes, and accounts payable. Her bachelor's degree from State University of New York at Oswego provided the educational background required.

Away from the office, Ms. Cuny loves to cook, read, and crochet. She became engaged just weeks after joining USITT and is planning a May 2008 wedding.

A very important part of her life is family. Her only sibling, a brother, is also engaged, so the family will also participate in his July 2008 nuptials. To add to the activity level, Ms. Cuny purchased her first house this spring, and is experiencing all the challenges and learning opportunities that brings.

For USITT, Ms. Cuny will be recording cash receipts, processing receivables, payables, payroll, and preparing annual budgets and audit details. Carol Carrigan, Administrative & Finance Manager, stated that "Ms. Cuny's strength within the hotel industry will greatly assist us as we begin planning conference catering events at our Houston hotels. I am pleased that Stephanie has joined our team, especially with our upcoming move to Syracuse's Connective Corridor. I am confident that she will be an asset to the organization and provide additional support of our day-to-day financial responsibilities."
