Meet The Staff

Our Team

Phil and Carol Fulbright

Front Desk Team

Born and raised on a cattle ranch in Eastern Montana. Later moving to the Western part of the state where I met my bride of 52 years now. We bought our first property where we raised sheep. I learned to shear sheep to help save on expenses. I worked a full-time job along with training horses on the side to help support our ranch. My bride was a stay at home mother of two and took care of the sheep and milking the cow along with doing the lambing while I was on the road shearing. We later sold our property and went shearing full time for our livelihood. In 1989 we took a summer job in Teton National Park as shearing was seasonal spring and fall. On the 15th of June 89 I had a job-related accident that thrust us into the Hospitality industry full time as I couldn’t continue to shear. We retired from Hotel management in 2011. I now work part-time for something to do. We recently purchased a 9-acre place south of Jackson where I plan on getting a couple of saddle mules for me and my bride to get away on some weekend trips in the hills. We are blessed with two children, 6 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren.

Elden Doloroso

Group Rooms Coordinator

Growing up in Southern California allowed me the opportunity to spend much of my time outdoors. And as a youngster, I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in the Boy Scouts of America taking monthly camping excursions. When not on trips with family or with the troop, I was always outside on my skateboard, BMX bicycle, climbing, surfing, or playing volleyball at the beach. You could say that it was hard to keep me indoors at all. After serving in the United States Navy as a mechanical engineer stationed in Little Creek, VA, and deployed in the Caribbean and Mediterranean seas for much of that time, I returned to Los Angeles to study Economics at California State University in Long Beach. I worked in several fields from operations management at a major retailer, commercial banking, investment banking, and then merchandising project management in the packaging industry, I pursued self-employment as a wellness advisor. My studies as an advisor of health and wellness brought me to the conclusion that living as close to nature as possible is the best way for human beings to live. So my wife and I sold most our possessions, to find work in our National Parks. We spent our first summer in Glacier National Park serving as volunteers in Bear Management. Since the majority of the park is closed during the winter months, we had to find employment elsewhere until much of the wildlife comes out of hibernation again in the spring. We serendipitously found our way to Jackson Hole and have been more than excited to discover this wonderful area. I spend most of my days off hiking in the Tetons, snowboarding at the resort, shooting my recurve bow at the local outfitters, letting go of the day at the yoga studio, then ending the day either cooking from scratch at home or enjoying one of the many great eateries that the town has to offer.

Front Desk Team

Grew up in China, I feel so blessed to find another home in this country called Jackson. Not into anything in cities, the mountains out there is everything I will ever need. My favorite part of the job is driving the shuttle over to the airport. Every single moment when I see the Tetons, I can feel the love that is growing in my heart to encourage me to be a better person day by day. I am amazed by everything that this area offers me and I will keep exploring with the love and passion that I have for this place.



At the Lexington at Jackson Hole our amazing housekeeping team works around the clock to make sure everything is in top condition at all times. Proving our dedication to providing guests with great service by receiving top awards every year since 2010

Adi Jez

Front Desk Team

Hi my name is Adi Jez, I have travelled through dozens of countries and lived in six from Europe to America. I grew up in Italy and it is surely my favorite destination to date. I love good cuisine, photography, nature, and I love to meet people from different cultures. I look forward to enjoying the mountains and seeing Old Faithful for the first time.

Debbie Minnick

Front Desk Team

In 1995, I first received a glimpse of Jackson Hole in a postcard with The Chapel of the Transfiguration. I knew something with Jackson Hole then. I explored the west in 1999, traveling 500 miles a day for two weeks and drove through Jackson Hole. In 2001, I began a deeper relationship with Jackson Hole for 3 summer seasons and 2 winter seasons. Jackson Hole is a part of me and who I am, I return now, 20 years later, for a season to this land that I love and people familiar and new. Have you visited a six-part documentary "The National Parks: America's Best Idea"? I love nature protected and what it may do for us. I love the idea of helping you if you are feeling drawn this way.

Dee-Dee Trinh

Front Desk Team

Born and raised in Vietnam, a country in the middle of nowhere to many Americans, I was a bit disappointed landing in Santa Fe (New Mexico), a city not widely known even by Americans, for college education. But who knows that frustration has turned into contentment after 4 years when I started to find myself at peace with nature and the life I have? Not long after graduating from college, I came to Jackson (Wyoming), a town in the middle of nowhere, again, surprisingly this time with so much excitement and happiness. I hope to see you at the Lexington with lots of positive energy, since life is to be enjoyed when we all know to appreciate nature and uncertainty!

Dennis Oney

Front Desk Team

I moved from coastal North Carolina to Yellowstone in June of 2020, for what was originally a six week contract. I fell in love with the area, and the pandemic freed up a lot of my previous plans, so I’ve been here ever since. In September of 2021 I moved down from Yellowstone to work in Jackson, and I’m looking forward to another winter season of wildlife watching and Nordic skiing.

Esther “Malia” Benanua

Front Desk Team

Born and raised in Hawai’i. I come from a Paniolo (cowboy) town called Waimea. Best life decision I’ve made was to move 3,066 miles to Jackson, Wyoming to take on an opportunity of a lifetime. Currently living life to the fullest and exploring the world. Looking forward to starting a career.

Ed Krajsky

General Manager

I moved to the Jackson area in 1978 from Florida for a summer job and never left. I have worked for years inside both Yellowstone and Teton National Parks and I can give you a lot of ideas on nice hikes. My wife and I love Jackson Hole and the surrounding areas. And now that our son is in college and we are not driving all over the west for hockey games, we have more time to explore again. I love to sea kayak, hike, bike ride and climb when I get the chance to do it.

Adena Chernosky

Operations Manager

I began working for Tim & Diana Waycott in 2002 as a front desk agent at what was then known as the Trapper Inn. As the company grew, I took on more responsibility, and am now the Operations Manager. Originally from Pennsylvania, I learned to snowboard at Stratton, Vermont before moving “out west” to conquer bigger mountains. I spent two years in Bend, Oregon, but during a visit to Jackson Hole I knew she had found a home and relocated immediately. When I’m not working at The Lexington, I’m snowboarding, reporting the snow conditions for Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, blogging, playing Magic: The Gathering, podcasting, or wakeboarding. It’s a busy life, but someone has to live it!

John Sherwood

Maintenance Supervisor

I moved to Jackson in January of 2008 to attend an Avalanche Safety course as a requirement for a position as Guide at Mount Rainier. I am a U.S. Army Veteran of 14 years. I have two teenage daughters and attended The University of Kentucky’s Business Information Systems program at Hopkinsville Community College. I am also an alumnus of the NOLS Wilderness Medicine Institute. When I moved here I quickly found myself so at home with the total outdoor lifestyle in Teton Valley that I stayed! From training/competing in Ironman distance Triathlon to Climbing, Skiing, Hunting and Scuba Diving; Jackson has it all. You’ll surely meet me during your visit as I am always out and about. Please allow me to help you make the most of your stay by sharing my knowledge of the area’s activities. I look forward to meeting you.
