What I do: I manage the Northeast and Pacific territories and also get to work with all of our sales and services team members on strategies to be successful. Training our junior sales managers so they can grow in their positions and achieve their goals is a rewarding part of my job. I also get to work on the administrative side of our business and assist with long-term planning goals.

How I got here: I came into my current role at the CVB after working in a regional sales capacity for Marriott International. Prior to that position, I was in Providence at the CVB in sales. Altogether, I’ve worked about 10 years with Marriott and almost eight years in Providence.

My greatest career accomplishment: I’ve done a good job over the years of continuing to educate myself. Going back to school to get my MBA while working full time and traveling for work is something I’m particularly proud of. Completing the CASE designation through PCMA took some time, but that too was a worthwhile process that connected me with so many new people in the meetings industry.
