Stewardess – Lisa Dacek (U.S.)After growing up near the Great Lakes region and now calling South Florida my home, I have always surrounded myself around water and boating. It has been a true passion of mine since an early age and being on the water feels like home. I have grown up in the customer service and management industry and have been able to surround myself with positions that I am held to high standards with an attention to detail.
