Out of Bounds | Episode 10 - Dee Patel

This episode, Jaimie and Abby are hosted by the extraordinary Dee Patel, the Hermitage Hotel's first female Managing Director in the hotel's 111-year history. Patel began her career at the Hermitage Hotel in the rooms division and quickly rose through the ranks to General Manager before earning her current historical position. One of Nashville's most influential voices and advocates for women and diversity, Dee has served on over 18 civic and community boards and earned a gamut of accolades, including Nashville Business Journal Power 100, NBJ Women of Influence, NFocus Nashville's Most Powerful Women, and NBJ 40 Under 40.

Charming and humble, relatable and inspirational, Dee shares her journey to success with Jaimie and Abby, including graduating with her Bachelor's degree at only 19 years old, her experiences as a woman in a male-dominated industry, and her other successful career: being a mom of two.

Thank you to the Hermitage Hotel for hosting Out of Bounds with Jaimie and Abby at their new glamorous dining destination, Drusie & Darr, a culinary partnership with Michelin-starred Jean-Georges, serving approachable and seasonally-driven cuisine.
