How did you get your start in the industry?
I had worked for Nordstrom for 8 years and looking for a career change and a friend suggested hospitality. My first position was at The Westin Princeton.

What is the best career advice you’ve received?
Use every opportunity as a growth opportunity. You never know who you need as a mentor.
JC Ski Pic
What is the best client experience you have had?
When I first got to the Westin Philadelphia, a repeat client had worked with a sales leader for 10 years before I arrived. She was not open to change and it took a lot of time and persistence to gain her trust. She now books 2, $100K+ programs with me per year and is a very close confidant.

If you were not in this industry, what would you be doing right now?
Working with my father! 

What is your favorite city to travel to and why?
Maine, I was born there, got married there and vacation with my entire extended family every summer. It is heaven on earth.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 items would you bring with you?
Roman, Clay and Garret (my two kids and my husband).

If you could meet any historical figure, who would you choose and why?
Jackie O. I was named after her and my mother adored her.

If you woke up tomorrow as an animal, what animal would you choose to be and why?
Hammerhead Shark. They are incredibly interesting to look at and no other animal looks like them.

I renewed this year and was formerly a member in 2018.

What do you love about MPI NJ?
The comradery and opportunities!
