I am a travel fanatic and have literally traveled around the world. My passion is visiting historic hotels.
Quick Fact Bio:
I am a graduate of the Hospitality school at Florida International University. After graduation started my career at the Boca Raton Resort and Club when it was one of only 7 five star hotels in the United States, then on to South Seas Plantation on Captiva Island, FL . When we moved to Asheville in the 1980’s, I helped create the first Destination Management Company in the area which is still located in The Grove Park Inn. After several years with the Asheville CVB, I then accepted a job with Biltmore.
I have been married for 42 years and am the extremely proud mother of a daughter who has a Master’s Degree in BioMolecular/Chemical Engineering.
