What I do: I bring Maritz’s services to companies in the Southern California region. I strive to be a resource for industry professionals in the region, introduce fresh ideas and help make their lives a little easier.

How I got here: I began my journey in the hospitality industry as a travel director for Maritz, where I was repeatedly asked to work programs for new clients to ensure smooth and successful event operation as our companies learned to work together. This led to a natural transition into business development and introducing more companies to Maritz.

My greatest career accomplishment:  I would say I am most proud of the trust I have earned from my company. Being selected to lead the travel staff for great clients and now heading up business development for one of the best and toughest regions in the country is truly an honor.
