Tell us about yourself.
Currently, I am an Executive Administrator at TTS. From onboarding new hires, to HR items and miscellaneous tasks, it is always an honor to assist our owners and a privilege to work so closely with them. I didn’t start in this position though – I worked and wiggled my way up and through almost every department here at TTS over the past years (not kidding… I’ve been an Account Manager, developed Team Relations roles, customer service, assisted in Hotel Relations and more), and I’ve loved every step of the journey! Learning something new is a constant craving of mine, and TTS has given me the room and opportunity to do just that.
I grew up in the sports world – I cheered competitively for years and played both soccer and lacrosse as a kid. I was consistently involved in sports and learned the value it holds in shaping and building character from a young age. Having my hands in sports now through TTS as an adult brings me joy and a sense of ‘giving back’ to the event producers and coaches that invested in me as a kid.
When I’m not at the office, you can find me with my family (my sweet husband and 2 awesome kids) and friends either relaxing or adventuring!

What awards/recognitions if any have you received while working at TTS?
What is your favorite memory of working at TTS?
I have so many, it’s hard to choose just one. A couple of my favorites include drinking a beer at lunch with April and Sarah on my very first day at Team Travel Source, presenting our bid to USA Volleyball when trying to win their business, then also when we found out we WON that business, speaking on the phone with a customer and having to confirm the email “Luscious Quita” while April and Sarah busted out laughing in the background, talking with the owner of a company at Connect Sports that ran Quidditch events (yes, like Harry Potter.. it’s a real thing). I could keep on going!
What is the best thing about working at TTS?
Having leaders that lead, not bosses that boss! Professional growth potential is always available if you want to put in the work. The possibilities are endless.
Which core value is your personal favorite and why?
Work/Life Balance. This core value means everything to me, especially after having kids. Having the ability to be “all in” and love my work when at the office and also be “all in” and fully present at home with my family aligns with my personal values. Work hard, play hard has always been a motto of mine, and not only am I able to live that out at Team Travel Source, but they encourage it.
To make the world a better place we should...
Forgive always, be quick to listen and slow to speak.

Camping, Ultra4 Offroading with my husband, fishing, being outside and spending time at the lake.
Who is waiting for you at home?
My fun-loving husband, Kyle, and our 2 energetic kiddos, Callie and Tanner.“Live every day with intention.”
