I have a passion for travel + tourism + local businesses – specifically how communities can work with and support small, local businesses. I believe that tourism bureaus are the glue that brings the community together and are uniquely positioned to created new and exciting local and visitor experiences that are inclusive of all local businesses.

I work for our employees. Our employees do not work for me.
