Although I call Boykin, South Carolina home, my Charleston roots run deep as my family has been here for multiple generations. I moved to the city to attend the College of Charleston, where I earned a degree in History, and began working in the Charleston tourism industry in the summer of 2000.
One of the most rewarding aspects of my work was interacting with visitors from around the world on a daily basis and providing them with things to do while visiting our incredible and historic city. The best part was when those same people would return to thank me and applaud not only my suggestions, but my customer service as well. I have been dreaming of running my own hospitality-driven business ever since.
After taking a brief hiatus from the industry to work for one of the top veterinarians in the state, as well as becoming an employee of my alma mater for a short time, I was eager to return to the field of tourism. When Megan Morgan-Finne at Mingle Charleston decided to expand her already successful wedding and event planning business, she contacted me to see if I would be interested in running a new Mingle travel service. With my strong connections and love of the industry, I jumped at the opportunity. I am now extremely excited and eager to show all of our clients why Charleston is one of the greatest cities in the world!
My husband, Dave, also earned a History degree from the College of Charleston and has been a registered tour guide with the city since 2001. When we're not working, you can find us enjoying a day on the beach, walking around downtown, listening to live music, or just spending time with our dog, Dixie Pup.
