I grew up in North Central Montana where I was raised on the family wheat farm. Eventually, I attended the University of Montana until moving to the west coast and attended Clark College in Vancouver, WA.
I have been involved in the tourism industry for 25+ years, and along with my husband BJ, owned a very successful full service country inn for 20 of those years. Our inn received the award for "Best Evening Cuisine."
During the Lewis and Clark Commemoration, I served as the Director for the multi-days tours for the Lewis and Clark River Cruises, of which eventually led to a position as Director of the Gray Line sight-seeing program and a company’s inbound/outbound tour department.
I am a member of the Oregon Tour and Travel Alliance, (currently serving as President), Washington (State) Tourism Alliance, the National Tour Association, Oregon Festival and Events Association and the World Food Travel Association.
Over the years I have received numerous awards from the Tourism Industry including the prestigious Oregon Governor’s Tourism Award.
As Global Sales Director for River Pilot Tours, my main goal is to work with the factions of the tourism industry to develop, expand and promote our tourism and package travel programs.
