Kelsie McLean

2011 Dart Scholar Alumnus
Johnson & Wales University
Class of 2014
Hotel and Lodging Management

Kelsie first joined Dart as an HR work experience student while she was still at St. Ignatius Catholic School. With natural social and networking skills, she chose to pursue her undergraduate degree in hotel and lodging management to combine her HR knowledge with her flair for hospitality.

She expanded her degree with a minor in international property operations and also took part in a 3 1/2– week study abroad progamme in Sorrento, Italy.

Upon graduation from Johnson & Wales University, Kelsie received a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity through Dart to work at Kimpton's EPIC resort in Miami. After a year with EPIC, she returned home to Grand Cayman in February 2016 where she became one of the first employees at the Seafire Resort + Spa. As the People & Culture Coordinator, Kelsie assisted with the recruitment of over 300 employees before Seafire's grand opening in November 2016.

Kelsie then returned to work at Dart as HR Coordinator on the Talent Acquisition team in August 2017 and was promoted to Senior HR Coordinator in December 2017.
