She then moved to Bangkok in 2013 to take the role of general manager at Anantara Sathorn Bangkok Hotel and Oaks Bangkok Sathorn. In 2016, with the opening of Avani’s first property in Khon Kaen, she was appointed Cluster GM, overseeing Anantara Sathorn Bangkok Hotel, Oaks Bangkok Sathorn, and Avani Khon Kaen Hotel & Convention Centre.
