As a proud native of Buffalo, New York, I attended the State University College at Buffalo. Shortly after graduation, I moved to Orlando, Florida to pursue a career in the hospitality industry. After a brief time in the educational field, I moved into a sales role with the Omni Rosen Hotel. After several promotions within Rosen Hotels, I continued my progression up the hospitality industry ladder with senior leadership roles with The Walt Disney World Resort and Hilton Hotels, both located in Orlando, Florida.
After 13 successful years in Orlando, I decided to take on new endeavors and accepted a leadership role with the world’s largest resort, The Venetian and Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada as the Regional Director of Sales. The experience and knowledge gained in this sales and marketing leadership role led to my current position as the Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing with Fiesta Americana Hotels & Resorts/Posadas, a leading Latin American Hotel Company. In this current position, I oversee all group sales & marketing efforts for multiple luxurious hotels and resorts throughout Mexico featuring the brands of Fiesta Americana, Grand Fiesta Americana and Live Aqua Hotels & Resorts. Currently residing in Peoria, Arizona and active with many industry boards and forward thinking hospitality initiatives.
