With my diverse career in marketing, business management and customer service as well as my love of travel and experience as a guest in more than 50 vacation rentals, boutique hotels and glamping tents, I guide struggling and overwhelmed hosts as they navigate the industry, create guest-first experiences, diversify their marketing and outshine their competition.
I believe in hospitality. I believe in giving your customers your all – and for vacation rental hosts, “your all” means an excellent guest experience.
And I know from working with dozens of hosts, that those who strive to be memorable, who strive to provide the perfect stay, who love their destination and share it proudly…those are the hosts who last. They have better reviews. They have repeat guests. They get the rates they want and guests who take care of their properties and tell everyone they know what a great time they had.
And just like the hosts I work with, I give it my all. I strive to be memorable. I work hard to share my knowledge, expertise, skills, and creativity so that my clients know that my heart is part of their business.
I’m known for creating modern and beautiful book-direct websites, and teaching hosts how to market their business and achieve more direct bookings – plus my goofball sense of humor, East Texas twang, frequent road trips and my sweet lab girl Jolene!
There are plenty of industry coaches and web designers out there who will tell you how easy it is to “book direct”. Well, it “ain’t” always easy. In fact, most of the time it’s pretty damn hard. You have to want it.
If I’m not at my desk working on a website or zooming in a coaching call, you’ll find me watching the latest streaming series with my hubby, exploring the hill country, listening to live music or out on a road trip (usually with Jolene along for the ride.)
They met in junior high and have been married 54 years – they still dance on the front porch to George Jones and hold hands watching TV. I’m blessed beyond measure to have had their support.
