You're a jack of all trades that doesn't mind serving breakfast in the morning, netting fish in the pond for our guests, assisting the housekeepers or maintaining the restoration project on Jack Creek. The ability to complete a variety of tasks throughout the day with the energy to chase big trout afterwards sounds like a good way to spend a summer to you.
