Meet Arkiell Ferguson, Executive Chef of Van Acre, the spirited restaurant located within our Hilton Garden Inn Wausau. Arkiell has been with Van Acre from the very start, joining the team in 2021 prior to opening.

She invests time and effort in mastering every aspect of the kitchen, inspiring her team members to adopt the Van Acre philosophy of delivering exceptional guest experiences through exquisite dishes. As Executive Chef, she crafts culinary delights and fosters a culture of growth, creativity, and excellence within the Van Acre kitchen.
