Giving my team the tools needed to succeed and allowing them to thrive is the most rewarding gift anyone can give.”
In her spare time, Cediel enjoys spending time with her 8-year-old daughter, Kylie. They spend time together outside, baking, doing crafts and relaxing. Cediel also participates in numerous community service activities with her church group involving the well-being of the Houston and Kingwood communities. “As most people know, TTRKW is different than other locations. I am close to this community, and have been for over 10 years. I enjoy working with the community directly and becoming a true neighbor with my guests.”
