What I Do: I have the privilege of leading our incredible event services team, as well as our accounting/finance and human resource organizations. With 21 years at Anthony Travel, I enjoy working in many different areas both externally with clients and vendors and internally with our support teams.

How I Got Here: After a few years in public accounting and corporate finance, I joined the team at Anthony Travel in 1997 to do financial work. After some turnover in our executive team, and in the midst of major changes within the travel industry, I found myself building a team focused solely on servicing the growing needs of sports event travel. I have been fortunate to work side by side with some incredible clients, vendor partners and internal team members.

Impressive Stats: In 2018, we will offer housing services and/or fan packages for more than 400 events per year, everything from youth sports to professional sports, including servicing all NCAA Championships and the Super Bowl.

What I am Working on Now: We are working on transforming the world of sports travel experiences for the future. As new generations are focused less on what they have and more on what they can experience, we are looking for ways to transform current opportunities into innovative ways for people to experience and enjoy the world.

What I Do Outside of Work: I have three kids—my time is spent with them and all their activities!
