IMMEDIATE FAMILY

Here at Webster’s Prime our staff, guests and suppliers are more than just that, they’re family.
Stefan

STEFAN

Executive Chef / General Manager

I came to Greenleaf to open Zazios in October 2004 from the award winning Milano Restaurant in Kansas City, Missouri. At Zazios, we forged relationships with local growers and farmers. These relationships continue with our team at Webster’s Prime, focusing on clean flavors, fresh combinations, and stressing the importance of our food’s “chain of custody” for the center of the plate concept. When not in the restaurant, you’ll find me golfing, laughing with grandkids, or smiling with my lovely wife Amy.


Nate

NATE

Sous Chef

I started my culinary career with Greenleaf Hospitality in 2009, hired as a dishwasher in the banquet department. To help mold me into the chef I am today, I have had the privilege of working with knowledgeable mentors, challenging peers and my extremely talented wife. I’ve also recently graduated from the Italian Culinary Institute in Calabria, Italy. Even with my newfound love of Italian Regional cuisine, I still like to tap into my Japanese roots on the plate whenever I get the chance.

ALEXA

Webster’s “Governess”
(Restaurant Supervisor/Event Coordinator/Shepherd of the Flock)

I’ve been with Greenleaf Hospitality for over six years now, and spent most of my time here at Webster’s. My love for this restaurant began as a server in 2008 and has continued to grow ever since. This crew is my second family, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I met my best friend here, I met my husband here and I found my passion for restaurant life here. If I’m not running around the restaurant trying to multi-task 15 things, you’ll find me at home relaxing with my husband and my two cats. Most likely a glass of Nero d’Avola in hand (or my latest wine obsession) and a good vinyl spinning on the record player.


Anna

ANNA

Webster’s “Goddess”
(Server/Bartender/Supervisor Extraordinaire)

From serving through college, shaking drinks at our bar, or supervising a busy floor, I have been fortunate enough to call Webster’s Prime my home for roughly 8 years. Throughout this time, my Webster’s Prime family has enabled me to pursue my passion for people. The relationships I am able to create within my team and with every guest at Webster’s is a unique and special one, and for that, I am exceptionally grateful. When I am not doing one of my many roles at the restaurant, you will find me drinking a sparkling wine, listening to Steve Wonder, and thrifting. A conga line is also occasionally involved.


KYLE

Line Cook

I started Banquet serving in 2012, within a year I found a home in Webster’s kitchen. Constantly challenged and always learning, it was hard to say no to any opportunity to be part of the culture. I am the “younger brother” of the team, (like the one no one wanted!) but it’s an honor.

SARAH

Line Cook

I just started my culinary career with Greenleaf here at Webster’s, and I could not be more excited. It is an honor to be a part of this family, cooking alongside my talented coworkers. Before joining the team I was a barista pursuing a degree in baking and pastry arts. When I am not cooking or in school I like spending my time outside and with my family hiking, gardening, or swimming.

TYLER

Line Cook

I joined the Greenleaf Family in August of 2010 at Zazios Birmingham as a humble dishwasher. It was there that I witnessed, first hand, the process of simple yet beautiful food preparation and execution. In January of 2013 I was asked if I'd be interested in moving to Kalamazoo to continue my career at Zazios, and without hesitation I picked up and moved (quite literally overnight). I learned and honed my skills working under Chef John Korycki, who helped to teach and share the principles of Italian cuisine with me for the next 2.5 years until he went to head the culinary program at KVCC. I joined the Websters family only recently, but their drive and passion for food was the same as mine. When not in the Kitchen, I enjoy the therapy of my drum set, reading, and computer gaming.


HOLLI

Bartender

I have been one of the bartenders here for almost 3 years. I love creating new cocktails and conversing with the many regulars and fun new guests that walk into the lounge. When I’m not at work, I like to do projects around my new house and enjoy spending time with my extended “Framily”!

ANNE

Bartender

As my 6 year anniversary is shining around the corner, I couldn’t have asked for a better restaurant to explore my love and talent in the hospitality business. My role in the Tasting Room has helped me reach new goals in and out of the beautiful mahogany walls of our Webster’s lounge. My Fiancé and I share the dream of owning our first home on the lake, and are cherishing these new moments. I am a huge fan of the Detroit Tigers and college football. I look forward to cheering on these games with our friends, new and familiar faces, in the Tasting Room this Fall!

NATALIE

Server

I am the second newest addition to Webster’s Prime and am very excited to be a part of this team. I recently received my Bachelor’s from WMU in Communications and Social Work. When I am not working, I enjoy anything outside, preferably in the mountains or on a body of water, and I love spending time with my dog, Lilly.

DANA

Server

I graduated from Western Michigan University in 2011 with degrees in English and Public Relations. While serving started as a college job, I’ve really fallen in love with the industry – especially since joining the Webster’s team. When I’m not serving up Wagyu beef and truffled potato gratin (my favorites!), you can find me reading on the front porch, biking the KRVT with a bottle of wine in my backpack, adventuring with friends or spending time with my family.

TRICIA

Server

I’ve been with my Webster’s family for two amazing years. Born and raised in Kalamazoo, Western Michigan University, the Radisson, and Webster’s Prime all make up this fun little town I call home. When I’m at work, I get to serve the locals as well as travelers from near and far. Each guest interaction brings a new story to tell and a new friend of the restaurant. When I’m not at work, you can find me on the boat with my doggie Tate, drinking an Oberon.

KAYLEE

Server

I’m going on my third year working at Webster’s, and I’ve loved every second of it! I am finishing up my last year at Western Michigan University, double majoring in Special Education and Spanish. After being on the cheer team for four years, I bleed brown and gold, so GO BRONCOS! I also am very involved with different student organizations on campus such as: Western student association, Campus Activities Board, Spanish Club, and my lovely sorority; Alpha Omicron Pi!
Webster’s has been more than accommodating for my busy bee life style, and has the most tight knit staff I have ever seen/been apart of. I even met my absolute best friend while working here, and now Nicole and I are inseparable. Everyone treats each other like family, because that’s what we are! The relationships I have established with not only my co-workers, but each and every guest I have served, continues to fill my heart with happiness. I love being able to return that favor and let that shine through every time I clock in :)

TIFFANY

Hostess

I have been with The Radisson Plaza Hotel for 9 plus years. I started here as a customer service representative/ delivery driver before becoming the operations trainer and a designer in the floral shop. I crossed trained into RIO where I became the supervisor when the floral shop closed. After working 2.5 years in RIO I became a quality inspector/supervisor in the housekeeping department. I spent 1.5 years in housekeeping before making the exciting transition to join this amazing team to become the hostess/event coordinator admin here at Webster’s Prime. When I am not here I am a full time student at Kellogg Community College, which I started this fall with plans to become a nurse, at my part time job that I have had for 2.5 years, at home doing projects around the house, volunteering at my church where I recently became the church secretary, or out running. I’ve been taking my running seriously, accomplishing my first half and full marathons. In addition, I ran a couple other half marathons, a 10 mile, and a couple 5Ks including a team marathon relay. I love my family, friends, animals which consist of my 2 cats Mr. Meowzers and Little Sassy Pants, Simon the dog, and the abundance of fish and snails that just keep multiplying, running, being outside, helping others, the occasional sports, and reading.

NICOLE

Server

I started working at Webster’s Prime after returning home from attending Rhema Bible Training center in Tulsa Oklahoma. After two years here I received a full time position at Valley Family Church as the Assimilation Director which merited me slowly transitioning out of the Websters family in order to fully immerse myself in my new role. After some hinting that I’d be more than welcomed back, I am so excited and honored to step back onto this team where I am truly in awe of the caliber of our chefs and their creative cooking, I get to work with my ‘little brother’ Kyle (yes, we do want him), and to work alongside this very small team, with the widest variety of personalities and lifestyles, and have fun while doing it!

I am fueled by caramel macchiatos and close friends, average seeing one movie a week in theaters (it’s the buttered popcorn), and very much love my dog, Binky.
