General Manager, Carving Room
Orlie was born in Israel and moved to Maryland with her family when she was 4 years old. As her family relocated to a new country, she grew up watching her parents overcome obstacles in pursuit of their American dream, such as learning the language, even though they were fluent in multiple others, purchasing their first home, and balancing family and work. They took their experience working in hair salons in Israel and did the same in the US. Their entrepreneurial spirit led them to open their own salons, which Orlie and her siblings grew up in and witnessed their hard work and dedication in pursuit of their dream. Orlie continued her exposure to the hospitality industry by working in restaurants and bars in the DC and MD area, and also in CA when she relocated there and started her family. Following her time in the hospitality field, she took on a new challenge and joined the Nespresso team and excelled as their top salesperson, both in CA and also when she recently returned to MD. Orlie joined the Carving Room team in 2017 as the GM of the MVT location, where she enjoys increasing operational efficiency, building relationships with the staff and guests, and growing and developing the staff and challenging them to pursue operational excellence as they welcome in thousands of guests each week. When she is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her children Joshua and Jayden, their dog Jax, and her best friend from childhood, Edva.
