As a native Oregonian, I love selling Portland as a destination for Meetings and Conventions. I’ve worked in Portland’s hospitality community for over 25 years and have been with Travel Portland for 17 of those years. I earned my Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) designation in 2002 and my Certified Association Sales Executive (CASE) designation in 2016. I enjoy spending time with my family & friends. I have two young men that amaze me every day. During the summer I like to spend time outside enjoying live music or taking in one of many summer festivals including the Blues and Microbrew festivals along Waterfront Park. I enjoy our farm fresh food scene, local microbrews and Oregon’s fabulous Pinot Noir.
I am an active promoter of Portland as a visitor destination for international, national, regional and state groups. As the contracted marketing agency for the Oregon Convention Center, Travel Portland is responsible for long-range convention sales for Portland. Travel Portland’s convention sales team focuses on both convention center and single-hotel groups.
When groups choose Portland, they can count on professional, enthusiastic assistance that starts the minute you contact our team and continues through the closing session.
