Her favorite part of the job is planning FAM trips that bring potential future customers to the city. She gets a enjoys surprising first-time visitors with the incredible benefits of Grand Rapids as a convention destination – including how walkable, clean and friendly it is.

Bio Bits:

  • Can’t get enough of Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park – especially the view from the top of the Japanese Garden.
  • Recommends sharing small plates at San Chez Bistro and the White Chocolate Blonde beer (“tastes like a s’more!”) at Grand Armory Brewing
  • Looks forward to the whitewater restoration that will make downtown’s Grand River a major recreational hub
