Goodwell, Okla. — Kim Tuttle graduated from OPSU in 2012 with Bachelors of Business Administration degrees in both General Business and Computer Information Systems (CIS). She is currently employed at The Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla. as a Restaurant Guest Service Manager.

A Guymon, Okla. High School graduate, Tuttle’s daily responsibilities are managing daily restaurant operations including table service, quick service and pool bars. Not only does she manage the operation, but she also teaches it to her cast members so they can provide excellent guest service.

Tuttle said, “Our mission is to make every guest feel special. Disney has a commitment to creating and delivering unforgettable experiences.”

She is currently pursuing a Master’s of Business Administration with Stetson University and is a part of their executive program in cohort 12. Tuttle recently traveled to Bangkok, Thailand for an international business class filled with business visits during the day and touring the city at night. From Thai food to fish pedicures, Thai massages and elephant rides, she and the students she traveled with were able to immerse themselves in the culture of Thailand.

Tuttle commented on her time as an OPSU student saying, “OPSU has a special spot in my life journey because the faculty and clubs on campus provided many opportunities for growth and development both personally and professionally. The CIS department is where I spent a large part of my time on campus; the faculty was always interested in the students’ performance and areas of opportunity so that they could better prepare us for our future. The professors assist students with minor things like proofing resumes and major things like taking us on trips for AITP (Association of Information Technology) where we could network and interview for future jobs or internships. Many people think that attending a small university will not give you real world experience, but I have found that everything I experienced in my four years at OPSU shaped me into a prepared professional ready to be competitive in the workplace.”
