Rotations: Miami Airport, South Beach, Atlanta Airport, Los Angeles Airport, Detroit Airport and Berlin Tegel Airport for 2 weeks.

Best restaurants: So many in Berlin… I went somewhere different every night and had some amazing döner kebabs.

Must see/do: In Berlin, it’s a Fat Tire Bike ride. Tour the whole city for 4 hours and learn the history. Climb to the top of the “Chick on the Stick” aka Golden Else. It’s a huge climb, so bring water. But the view is amazing. You can see 4 major parts of the city, and the detail of the art on the Golden Else is out of this world!

Favorite car in the Sixt fleet: Mercedes-Benz ML.

Favorite part about current position: Exploring new cities, seeing different Sixt locations. This really helped me see how things can be done differently to have a great branch. Also, taking advice and learning from my supervisors and other branch managers has been very helpful.
