How long have you worked in the Tourism Industry?

How did you become a part of the Tourism Industry?

After college I was leasing apartments and a woman that I rented an apartment to thought I would be a great fit for a sales position at the hotel where she was working.  I started that job two weeks later and the rest is history.

Favorite Vacation Spot?

I love staycations and staying downtown Grand Rapids with my husband but if I do leave the state I really love the islands.

One piece of advice or tip you would give to a first time visitor to Grand Rapids?

Make sure to take enough time to enjoy what we have to offer here in Grand Rapids.  I promise it is worth it!!
