  1. What are three items you would bring to a desert island?
    1 – Sunblock – because I BURN and for skin preservation, of course!
    2 – A knife – because it seems like it could come in handy plus that’s what people tend to bring with them on that show, Naked and Afraid.
    3 – Music – because I always feel better when I dance!
     

  2. What’s your ideal weekend like?

    Spent with my husband and daughter, Stella. Being outdoors, enjoying the warm weather and fresh air. Beautiful mountain views in Loudoun county and if I’m lucky, one of those days is spent at a local winery. Did I mention, sipping wine and eating popcorn and/or chocolate should happen at some point over the weekend!

  3. What’s your favorite kind of group to work with?

    I love collaboration, so when a group relies on me to provide solutions and get creative, I really enjoy that. When I can get my entire team involved from Recreation to Culinary teams and get everyone excited about a group’s program because their hands are in it, that’s an amazing feeling. It’s important for me to feel like a solution and that I’m not providing transactional service.

  4. What’s the secret to your success as a Sales Manager (or current role)?
    Staying connected with my clients and being open and honest is key. Building trust is the foundation to long lasting relationships.

     

  5. What’s the biggest career risk you’ve ever taken? Moving from a planning position to a selling position and having a goal to meet. I always want to be great at what I do, so the unknown was scary, but the risk was well worth it and I’m loving it!

  6. Do you have any insider hospitality tips for groups traveling to Virginia Wine Country? Obviously, you’ll want to stay at Lansdowne Resort and Spa and ask for a room with a view! You won’t regret waking up to mountain and golf course views. The resort recently partnered with Catoctin Creek Distillery and now has it’s own labeled whiskey that’s served in Coton and Rye. You’ll definitely want to try that – the rye used to make the whiskey was locally grown on land in Loudoun County. This is the first legally made liquor in Virginia since the prohibition. Pretty neat!

    Make some room in the group agenda for free time. There’s so much to do in the area and adding any kind of team building activity, especially if it’s outdoors will just add to the group experience and make for a memorable time in Virginia’s Wine Country.

  7. What advice do you have for your clients on the best deals? If the program dates are flexible this can translate into cost savings for the client. Being able to fit within a need month or arrive on a particular day can allow your sales manager to get you a better deal, so make sure to ask your sales manager if they have any need periods to fill! If you can sign a multi-year contract that should also allow for additional cost savings.
