It was years ago that I first heard Deborah's voice over the phone. (I just realized I was at this camp when I participated in that conference call). She was interviewing for a project at @kmacmuseum, and I was on the search committee. I knew I liked her immediately. She didn't get that project, but I later hired her to design the first, and what we thought would be the only @21chotels in Louisville. We launched 11 years ago and since then, she's helped us bring to life 6 more 21c properties (and others are in the works). Each one is unique and such a source of pride for me and Laura Lee. What started as a professional relationship has blossomed over the years into a wonderful friendship. This week, Laura Lee and I are thrilled that @deborahberke and her husband, Dr. Peter McCann, are with us in Canada for a different kind of #hospitality experience! Deborah, even though she is a minimalist, is enjoying the rustic nature of an historic Canadian fishing camp.
