Omni Spotlight: Levi Welling
When you work for Omni Amelia Island Plantation, you’re family. Perhaps nobody knows this better than Nature Center Supervisor, Levi Welling. As part of the Recreation team here at the resort, Levi has the pleasure of working with some of his best friends day in and day out. He even met his lovely wife, Marilou, here. Hired as an Environmental Interpretation Intern for the Nature Center in 2010, Levi approaches everything he does with a smile on his face and a level of enthusiasm that is literally infectious. As the Nature Center Supervisor, he consistently strives to ensure that all of our tours, the retail shop and the Nature Center all run as smoothly as possible. We’re proud to feature him in this week’s blog…
