Why Travel Beyond

I enjoy working at Travel Beyond because I’m passionate about the travel industry. Even though I don’t travel as much personally as in previous years, I knew I wanted to still be involved and help others in their travel experience. I love how traveling can open our eyes to new cultures, adventures, and experiences. It can broaden our education and understanding of the world.

Career History

Worked for Carlson Marketing (now Aimia) for 7 years. Six years as a Travel Director handling on-site logistics and one year as a Meeting & Event Planner. I traveled both domestically and internationally during my time at Carlson. In addition to my work at Carlson, I also worked for a non-profit for 1.5 years.

Most Memorable Travel Experience

My most memorable travel experience would have to be working at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. Never have I worked so hard in my life and gotten the least amount of sleep, but it was all worth it because it was so rewarding to be part of a worldwide, high profile event. Seeing the world come together for “One World, One Dream” was the experience of a lifetime!
