Staff Spotlight: Stevonya Cox

If you’ve considered staying at The Somerset, chances are you’ve spoken with Stevonya Cox, our Head Reservationist. When she answers the phone, you can hear her bright smile as she works with you to help plan your dream vacation. Home Sweet Provo Originally from The Bahamas, Stevonya moved to Turks & Caicos with her family during high school. She quickly fell into an exciting, comfortable rhythm, even meeting a “local guy,” who has since become her husband and the father of her 3-year old son, Joshua.

Prior to joining our team at The Somerset three years ago, Stevonya worked in many Front of House roles at other Grace Bay hotels. Bringing Visions to Life Stevonya…
