What is the most rewarding part of your role at Scurry Street?
The most rewarding part of my role at Scurry Street is that I can provide travel services and support to the Scurry Street clients. Scurry Street Travel offers another solution for clients when planning their meeting and event needs. Making Scurry Street a “One-Stop” shop for meetings, events, and travel.
What’s your superpower - your unique skill or talent that makes you invaluable to our clients?
My superpower is Planning. Planning an event or travel is like a puzzle. I enjoy planning events and travel, by putting all the pieces together to see a bigger picture. No matter how people get to their destination or why they are traveling, I want to make sure they have a stress-free travel experience. I can’t control the airlines and other suppliers, but I can help provide service and recommendations to keep stress levels down.
What dream job would you do for free?
I didn’t know what I wanted to do after I retired from the military. I never envisioned being an event and travel consultant. I researched the industry and decided to invest in it. I love planning events, enjoy the people I’ve met and places that I have never been before. I am doing what I love AND getting paid for it!
Favorite travel destination and why?
Germany. I LOVE German cuisine 🥨🍻. In addition, two of my sons were born at military bases in Germany. I like touring the country from the modern cities to the old castles.
Ultimate dinner party - name three of your guests.
My Ultimate dinner party would be one that I did not have to plan, organize, cook, or manage. I would love to just arrive at the location, find my seat, and enjoy the company of the other guests. My husband would be my “plus-1.” I don’t want to name any others as I don’t want to leave anyone out. The dinner party would be about fellowship and enjoying good food.
What’s your walk-on song?
The General’s March – “Ruffles and Flourishes”. This is a military song to announce the entrance of general officers. It is short and sweet, but very attention-getting. LOL! This song will announce that “I AM HERE” and pay attention!
