Castmember Spotlight: Jerrale Tyjah Morris

My name is Jerrale Tyjah Morris and  I was born in San Diego, California.  I absolutely love San Diego, it’s my home, but in my teen years I didn’t feel the same way.  I personally believe very few people can appreciate the city they went through puberty in, which lead me on my journey around America.  I moved to New Orleans, Louisiana when I was twenty one.  I live to visit that city.  It was amazing while I was there.  One of the things that I’ve learned is if you’re moving to New Orleans get a job at a bar during Mardi Gras.  You can have just as much fun and get paid for it!  After I left New Orleans, I went to the Mid West.  I wanted to see snow.  I had never lived in snow before.  Moved to Dayton, Ohio and Chicago.  Had an amazing time in both cities.  I eventually moved back home with a new found love and appreciation for this city.
I started working at Old Town Trolley in February 2014.  I saw the employment opportunity online.  I was a little confused because the interview process was slightly different than what I was used to.  It was a group interview which was slightly animated.  We were asked about our previous work history.  After the group interview we were given a script told to memorize as much as we could and we would be filed giving them a presentation of the script.  I was extremely nervous.  I stuttered a few times and “figuratively” kicked myself after.  A few days later John Savage called me back and my time at OTT San Diego started.  It’s been a really great experience so far.

What is your greatest fear?
Drowning.  That said, I love swimming.
What is your favorite occupation?
I love the idea of being a wildlife photographer.
What do you deplore most in your friends?
I have a really eclectic group of friends from all walks of life.
They are all really great people but I would say we all have the
ability to communicate our feelings good and bad effectively.
So we avoid serious arguments and when they do happen we
can actually resolve them.  I surround myself with extremely
understanding people.
If you were to die and come back as a person or thing,
what do you think it would be?
I think I’d come back as a Main Coon kitten.  They are the
most loving and cuddling cats, but they are still cats and
extremely mischievous.
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
A great dinner with close friends amazing conversation and no
cell phones.   I don’t allow phones at the dinner table so I am
lucky to experience perfect happiness a lot.

Meet our Sales Rep Linda Florentino

Thursday, March 3rd, 2016

Linda2

Meet Linda Florentino, a proud San Diego native and passionate Old Town Trolley San Diego CASTmember.  Linda grew up in National City and attended Sweetwater High where she met Joe, her high school sweetheart and husband of 44 years.  Together they raised three children and today they’re grandparents seven times over!
Linda’s journey with San Diego OTT began twelve years ago.  Hiring on as a conductor, she discovered her passion for assisting visitors in her hometown.  After two years, Linda decided to leave OTT to further her hospitality skills and to expand her knowledge of San Diego.  She did that by working in the destination management field as a guide.  Three years passed and the fond memories and friendships she developed with the Old Town Trolley CAST inspired her to return so she was welcomed back with great enthusiasm as a First Mate on the SEAL.  After only one year, Linda wanted to expand her relationship with San Diego visitors so she transferred into Sales where she honed her skills for the next five years.
This year, Linda embarked on a new journey with the latest addition to OTTSD, the San Diego Visitor Information Center.  Using her knowledge and talent as an Information/Sales Representative allows her to meet people from all over the world and assist them in planning their perfect stay.  Linda jokes, “The only thing left is to be a mechanic!”  …and if we know Linda, she’s already working on it!
