Meet our team at TheFork: Steph Groat
Meet Steph Groat, Sales, Administration & Onboarding Coordinator at TheFork Australia.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
After watching Legally Blonde I wanted to be a lawyer, in high school I wanted to be a stage manager.
Tell us a little about your career progression to this point
I started my career working Front Office in hotels before briefly considering becoming a teacher. After deciding that teaching wasn’t for me, I ended up working in the reservations team at Urban Purveyor Group and worked my way up to Senior Reservations Agent and managing that team before coming to TheFork (back when we were still Dimmi) as an Account Manager and eventually moved into SAO.
