Sanibel, FLA (Nov. 14, 2016)- Fran Peters, Owner and President of Island Vacations of Sanibel & Captiva, Inc., is a new member of the Keiser University Fort Myers Advisory Board. Keiser University prepares graduates for careers in the fields of business, criminal justice, health care, technology, hospitality and education.
The recent appointment resulted from Peters being approached by a Keiser University Hospitality student for an interview. After that meeting, they found themselves at some of the same business functions, and a student/mentor relationship developed. The student invited Peters to attend a class and listen to her report. During that visit, Peters ended up speaking to a group of Keiser Hospitality students about how she started her business and what she feels constitute the key ingredients of a successful Hospitality career. She was then approached by a Keiser professor and board member about serving on the Keiser University Advisory Board.
“I was honored to be asked to take this role as I enjoy helping people pursue their passion and excel in their careers. Working with the next generation of Hospitality professionals will be very gratifying and I look forward to serving on the Keiser University Fort Myers Advisory Board,” Peters said.
