Staff Profile: Ellynnore Gomez

This year, we will continue to share staff profiles to get to know members of our school family a little better. Each week we will feature a member of staff across all areas of the school including teachers, admin staff, support staff and more.

Our profile this week is Ellynnore Gomez, one of our fantastic waitresses from the school's catering provider ADNH Compass:

I was born in La Union, Philippines, in a community that thoroughly enjoyed food and nutrition in all aspects of our being. Delicious food and laughter were the focal point of every communal gathering, be it to celebrate or mourn.

Growing up I have always been passionate about excellent hospitality. Ensuring all students and visitors experience the highest standard of customer service is a great passion of mine and something I find incredibly rewarding.

I have been in the UAE for just five months and although it has been a short time, I have thoroughly enjoyed every second. Whether it’s serving the BIS Abu Dhabi students their healthy and nutritious lunches or preparing for events with the team, it has been a great experience.

My working day is based in the Primary Canteen, where I am very lucky to work with such kind and helpful students. I am delighted to be representing ADNH Compass in serving BIS Abu Dhabi. The teachers and staff are very kind and I love to work beside them.

I enjoy time with family and friends, including sport activities, especially playing volleyball.

I live by the saying ‘never give up’ and this goes for ensuring every student has a wonderful experience in our canteens. I am so proud to work with my team.
