VP, Public Relations, American Society of Travel Advisors
⭐️ Community Leader 🀘 Rockstar

After spending years traveling between the west coast and east coast, I recently relocated to Portland from Washington, D.C. I'm the VP of Public Relations for the American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA), a global network of over 80,000 travel professionals. I work on behalf of people who spend their days and nights crafting amazing, authentic, experiences for their clients! My job is to promote and defend our industry to the traveling public and beyond.

I'm also the Managing Editor for Travel Advisor magazine, the official quarterly publication of the American Society of Travel Advisors. I work with travel writers, photographers and global nomads to curate inspiring travel content for all our readers!
