“The Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa welcomes Chef Walter to the 7 Mile Kitchen team with open arms,” said Complex Marketing Manager Casey Schirmer. “Walter’s diverse background and skills align with our primary focus to achieve exceptional service and extraordinary dining experiences for our guests, and we look forward to his implementation.”
