Career History

I enjoyed a successful business career as a project manager and account manager most recently working for a companies that provides prescription drug benefits and a human capital consulting firm. My expertise was in HR/Payroll implementations and benefit administration. In 2011, I made a career change to enjoy more time with my family and help an aging parent. I worked part-time for a year as a care manager in an assisted living facility working with seniors that have Alzheimer’s and dementia before joining Travel Beyond.

Where I’ve Lived Abroad

My senior year in high school I spent a small amount of time in Schwabmunchen, Germany living with a host family.

Why I’m a Producer

I recently changed positions within Travel Beyond to expand my knowledge of our business and the end product we deliver to clients.

Most Memorable Travel Experience

I’ve enjoyed every place I have traveled but some of my fondest memories are in my travels to Switzerland. I first visited there with a high school group. I loved the city of Interlachen and my favorite activity was hiking down a mountain through the rural countryside of Grindelwald. I returned to Switzerland again on my honeymoon where we hiked down the same mountain. We also spent time in Zermatt where we enjoyed beautiful views of the Matterhorn and skied the Alps in October. My favorite experience with my family has been a Disney Cruise to the Bahamas. Disney does a wonderful job with every detail and everyone at any age will have a great experience!

My Most Recent Trip

My most recent trip was a cruise to the Western Bahamas with my family and all of my siblings. Outside of the ship’s amenities we enjoyed excursions including zip lining, Dunn’s River Falls, swimming with dolphins, Stingray City and snorkeling!
