How long have you been with Visit Plano?
How many years have you been in the travel & tourism industry?
I started working in hotels in 2010 and moved into the CVB world in 2011, so about 6 years.
What is your favorite part about working for Visit Plano so far?
Visit Plano has a very different approach to servicing that I think opens a lot of doors and really allows me to make sure every group leaves happy. If an event planner comes to us with a unique idea, we are going to do everything we can to try and make it happen.
What have you found to be one of your favorite things to do in Plano thus far?
I’m very much a nature girl, so I love going for a walk or run out at Arbor Hill Nature Preserve. It’s a great place to get out and get some fresh air.
What has been your favorite vacation?
I’d have to say that my favorite vacation was when I got to return to Costa Rica last year. I lived down there for a year during graduate school and hadn’t been back for several years. We got to catch up with friends, snorkel and swim in the Caribbean, go whitewater rafting, and hike to the top of an active volcano.
Guilty pleasure: What can you not live without?
Tacos! Torchy’s Tacos is one of my favorite Plano taco joints so far.
What is an interesting fact about yourself?
I am a bit of a nerd when it comes to sustainability and I love learning about recycling, composting, and different ways to live a zero waste lifestyle at home and when traveling.
