I have the opportunity to share my love of Grand Rapids with National and Regional Meeting Planners involved with the following markets:  Religious, Government, Military, Fraternal Organizations and Agriculture. I look forward to sharing why we are the perfect destination to host a Conference.

How long have you worked in the Tourism Industry?

12 Years

How did you become a part of the Tourism Industry?

While pledging Alpha Kappa Psi in college I helped plan an event with Hospitality members, the next semester I took an Intro to Hospitality class and was hooked. After college, I spent 6 years in Convention Hotel Sales patiently waiting for an opportunity to move back home to West Michigan and Experience Grand Rapids was the perfect move!

Favorite Vacation Spot?

Anywhere on Lake Michigan, I love the beach!

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

Take a walk along the river and spend time enjoying our Food, Beverage, Art & Culture.
