What I do: I help organizations save time and money by finding the right venue for their meeting or conference. I strategize with my clients, source relevant venues and assist with contract negotiations.

How I got here: I spent 11 years with Hilton Worldwide, with my final role being director of sales for the Hiltons of Washington, representing both the Washington Hilton and the Capital Hilton. I joined HelmsBriscoe in June 2016 and now have the opportunity to become an even closer partner and ally to my customers.

My greatest career accomplishment: When I was with Hilton, I was promoted four times in three years.
