Group Administration | Year Started in travel: 2004

I have travelled to Vancouver, Victoria, Ottawa, Niagara Falls, Toronto, Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta, Florida and Nashville.

I joined the team at Ellison Travel & Tours in 2004, after many years in the mechanical construction industry, to discover unique challenges in the travel industry.  I took on the position of housing and events coordinator for Ellison Travel & Tours’ largest client and Canada’s largest music festival with over 8,000 young musicians, MusicFest Canada until the fall of 2016.  I coordinated with all suppliers for the housing, meals, attractions and special events for this festival, to enhance their musical experience. I also work with other tour operators from across Canada and the USA who bring their groups to MusicFest. I had the unique privilege of attending this festival each year and listening, watching and sharing in the excitement of students who are passionate about music as they perform and are recognized for their accomplishments.

In October 2016 an opportunity came up in our company for a group planner and I am very excited to begin to plan tours across North America.
