Let's Get Personal

Working Towards a Better Tomorrow

    Founder, Annaliese Settles, has a history in the hospitality industry and wanted to create Women In Hospitality to increase the number of women in the hospitality field. Not only by encouraging young teens to choose hospitality as a major in college, but also to inspire women that feel they may not have found their dream career yet.

She graduated with a Bachelor in Science from The Conrad N. Hilton College at The University of Houston. While going to school she had her first job as a custodial, aka janitor, at the Hilton on campus. She quickly worked her way up to housekeeper then housekeeper supervisor and was awarded with the Hilton Blue Energy Committee Member all in 9 months. Hilton recognizes dedicated employees with the honor of granting membership of the Blue Energy Committee for employees that exhibit it's values. Hilton states that, "The Spirit of Blue Energy recognizes Team Members who live our values (Hospitality, Integrity, Leadership, Teamwork, Ownership, and Now) and deliver on our promise “to ensure every Guest feels cared for, valued, and respected,” by exceeding expectations for Guests, fellow Team Members, and the community." She was selected among a group of 20+.

After she was housekeeping supervisor she then worked at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in downtown Houston for 3 years. She worked as a front desk agent for 1 year and was then promoted to concierge for 2 years. During the 2020 global pandemic she transitioned to her family owned company, LuxuryRes, inc., where she now works as a hotel and marketing consultant.

"I started Women In Hospitality because I wanted to have an organized platform for women to refer to for scholarship opportunities, finding jobs, posting jobs, staying up-to-date on the latest hospitality trends, industry events, etc..."

We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Women Empowerment Organization upon: support, empowerment, and progress. Donations made to the Women In Hospitality education fund help women afford necessities in order to complete a hospitality diploma; such as tuition, textbooks, and any class requirements as well as support workshops for young teens interested in learning about hospitality as a career choice in college.
