I am Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau's Convention Sales Manager foir faith-based and multicultural meetings.
I am a dedicated professional, and I have a strong passion for working with people and going the extra mile. I started my hotel career in 2000 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Downtown San Jose assisting clients with room block reservations, menu and event details. I was promoted to Convention Services Manager, where I worked as a liaison between clients and hotel department heads to ensure successful meetings. Another promotion followed, making me the Director of Convention Services for the Crowne Plaza and its sister property, the Holiday Inn. A few short years later, I was promoted again to Hotel Sales Manager.
In 2006, I relocated to the Sacramento area and went to work for the DoubleTree and Hilton Hotels in the Sacramento Point West Marketplace.
In my free time, I enjoy riding the Sacramento bike trials, camping and spending time with my family.
