What’s the best part of your current job?
Leading a team of people who are excited about contributing the the hospitality industry.
What was your motivation for joining PCMA Gulf States?
My becoming involved with PCMA Gulf States was more accidental. I met someone at a luncheon who asked if I would be interested in participating in the chapter reception during Convening Leaders in Chicago. From there I continued to attend Chapter events, and eventually became a Board Member.
