“I had the extreme pleasure of working with Babette Haddox during the years of 1982 to 1993. She served as our Director of Sales and is one of the hardest working and most dedicated people that I have ever had the privilege to work with. Conscientious and persistence are probably the two key words that best words that describe her. Her caring and sincere nature, follow through and attention to detail helped her to triple and maintain our client base while she was here. She is very energetic and creative and this added to her ability to work with and satisfy our guests and clients. I would like it to be known that it was an extreme pleasure to work with her.”
