According to Harper, “I’ve worked across the country, but I’m thrilled that I’ve been able to achieve many professional goals here with the support of an incredible team. The Woodlands truly deserves its accolades like best city in America, and I love being in a position to help showcase the best of the community though these three wonderful hotels.”
