It is such a honor to be an Assistant Manager for Travelink, American Express  and I take pleasure in working with our leadership team to create a work environment where our advisors can stay motivated, engage and adapt to new and challenging situations to ensure high performance and customer satisfaction.  My role is all about providing guidance, support and target real-life examples of what can be done differently to create customer loyalty and improve our customer’s experience.  I love to “catch” employees doing something great (i.e. having an exceptional call) and frequently celebrates success with the entire team.  My professional background includes over 32 Years in the Travel Industry, where I worked Cendant Travel in Nashville, TN as a Frontline Travel Advisor, New Hire Trainer and promotion to leadership.  During my 17 years with American Express Consumer Travel Network, I obtained my Travel Certification, Authentic Leadership Certification and experience in Project Management.   

I have a passion for travel and have had amazing travel experiences with Celebrity Cruises, Royal Caribbean and Insight Vacations to destinations such as Mexico, Hawaii, Jamaica, Canada, Austria and Istanbul.
