I have decades of experience creating and producing online marketing. I left the corporate world to work independently with people who need help establishing and maintaining their online presence. Not everyone knows how, has the aptitude, or time to learn how to use online marketing tools, and nor should they have to try. Those people who need help and/or don't want an in-house marketing team work with me. Each client has different needs, goals and expectations. I do custom work for each of my clients. I get to know each person and know their voice, their style, rhythm and budget. 

I have a large skill set that covers the range of tasks for online marketing. It is both easy and cost efficient to work directly with me. I can get the whole job done.

Discover Monterey

The Monterey County Convention & Visitors Bureau receives numerous requests from travel agents and tour operators.  We are excited to showcase our diverse region, and partnering with you to bring more visitors to Monterey County. To help us maximize our limited resources, we appreciate your help in respecting our guidelines below.

FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES

In order to best serve you, we ask that the following guidelines be followed when requesting FAM trips:

  • Complete the online FAM Request Form (found below)
  • Contact the CVB at least six weeks in advance, for a successful visit. Once credentials have been verified, we will begin coordinating arrangements with our area partners. If less than six weeks notice is given, we will attempt to assist in every way we can; however, the CVB relies on our industry partners when conducting FAM trips, therefore we cannot guarantee all requests for assistance can be fully accommodated.
  • Complimentary arrangements (i.e. accommodations, meals, attraction tickets, etc.) are provided at the discretion of our industry partners. If “comps” cannot be accepted, a FAM rate will be requested. All requests are subject to availability.
