As Executive Director of the Janesville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau I work to promote Janesville as a tourism destination for leisure, group and business travelers. We have a staff of 6 and a group of 25 volunteers and operate two facilities including a downtown office and Visitor Information Center off of Interstate I-90/39. Working with our Board of Directors and Tourism Partners I oversee the JACVB's main goal of driving travel to the Janesville Area. Utilizing our annual budget of $600,000 we market to not only leisure travelers but also motorcoach and meeting and conference groups.
I serve on the board of Directors of the Upper Midwest CVB Assocation working towards educational opportunities for travel and tourism professionals throughout the Midwest and currently serve as Vice Chair for the Wisconsin Association of Convention & Visitors Bureaus.
