I have been highly active in the hospitality, tourism and special events industries for over 25 years. Prior to becoming a planner for Strategic Meeting Partners, I was a senior level executive with three of the top DMCs in San Diego: ACCESS Destination Services, PGI and California Leisure Consultants. Along the way, I have had the pleasure of designing and producing creative and logistically sound programs for clients, whom I now call friends. We created a shared vision of success, as together we delved into their organization's core values, motives and goals to integrate those ideas into their meetings.
I serve on the Board of Directors for the San Diego Chapter of MPI, and have held a committee role with the Greater New York Chapter for the past two years. As a highly active member in both chapters, I have been honored with various awards, including: Supplier of the Year, Star of the Month (twice), Committee of the Year (twice), and MVP for the Quarter.
