Having managed to survive 2 careers thus far I am excited to share my wisdom. Over 25 years of client servicing and business development experience combined with over 16 years focused in the travel industry. My most recent focus within the corporate travel industry has been strategic meetings management (SMM).

My experiences include having managed an association management company, retail management, corporate travel, meetings & events of all sizes and managing a huge industry trade show. I have been on both sides of the table, as a client and supplier. In addition, I have managed teams varying from 4 to 12 people in client servicing and business development. I have been lucky enough to have done this working from coast to coast in North America.

My focus now is working with people to expand and evolve their programs. SMM, sales, client management and technology. There are so many touch points and no one solution. That's the fun part... working together to find the best solution.
