FIRST BIG BREAK:

I was called for an interview and found out later that it was because the employer had interviewed me for a job at a different business; she had taken my resume with her when she became the Director of the Department of Parks & Tourism. I’ll always be grateful to Jo Luck for recognizing my potential.

ATTRACTION TO CAREER:

I have a knack for making connections with people — very good skills to have in this industry! Tourism is not just a career, it’s my passion.

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:

Besides a successful marriage (35 years!), two wonderful daughters and two fabulous grandchildren? Professionally, it was being recognized by the tourism industry and my peers at the Governor’s Conference on Tourism in 2011 as the Arkansas Tourism Person of the Year.

FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB:

I absolutely love the relationships that I’ve built in the tourism industry with people all over the world! It’s a great joy to make new friends, visit new places and share my life in travel and tourism.

REMEMBER ME FOR:

Leading my life with love and joy of new discovery, that I gave my all to everything I did and that I showed by example the traits that are important to me — hard work, honesty, strong ethics and the interest in always learning something new.
