Our Success Depends on Our Staff
Staff Spotlight: Nina King
When it comes to customer service, NMS' Nina King is a star. Having been with the company since 2008, she's worn a number of hats. From cashier to station manager and now the jack of all trades at Caliente. When you come down her line, she'll know you by name, she'll know your order and she'll remember some detail about you that makes you feel like you're longtime friends. She knows her customers and she loves her job, and it shows.
Nina King moved as a child from the Philippines to the US and made her way to Alaska in 1979. She lived and worked in Kodiak, Alaska in the school district there as a bi-lingual aide for 18 years. She started her career with NMS as a cashier at Creekside and in 2013, UAA opened the Eagle River kiosk and she managed that location until 2016. Nina says she was nervous about taking on the manager role, but Scott Evers encouraged her to push herself and she was excelled in the role. She loved working in the Eagle River location, she was close to home and she grew fond of the people she served every day. When Caliente opened, Scott knew just who could run that show - providing the kind of service that Nina grew famous for in Eagle River. Now she acts as cashier, sous chef and when needed, she works the line.
Married for more than 30 years, Nina and her husband have three children and two grandkids who are all out in Eagle River. Nina says her favorite thing about working for NMS is that she gets the interaction she needs from people - taking care of her social side and has the flexibility to spend her off time with her children and grandbabies.
Caliente offers catering for parties starting with a minimum of 30 people. We will be promoting this with a mailer to all departments, posted on Green & Gold and a new page on the Seawolf Dining website.
