Council of Hotel and Restaurant Trainers (CHART)

For more than 25 years, I have worked to advance hospitality training professionals (for this amazing and vibrant professional association) by developing results-driven marketing strategy, communications, social media, and member engagement.

I am a recipient of CHART’s President’s Award for outstanding service and contribution.

I have overseen the creative direction of more than 45 event personas. This integrated strategy has resulted in an average of 33% first-time attendees at each semi-annual conference for more than 10 years running. I am also instrumental in the writing and positioning of session content, the target audience reach plan, and implementation of all promotions and communications.


CHART’s online presence, brand voice, and community engagement is a cornerstone of its success. I invite you to check out the activity on these social channels:


The monthly printed flipCHART newsletter is CHART’s most important high-touch way to connect with members. I have personally written and have been the creative director for more than 167 consecutive issues, as of January of 2022.

The twice-per-month Training Flash E-newsletter provides more than 4,000 hospitality industry professionals a blast of quick inspiration through thought-leadership blogs from the best and brightest in hospitality training. I have written more than 300 blogs and articles for CHART and its members, which have resulted in more than 183,000 lifetime views.
