We are thrilled to welcome Nancy Garvey as Sonoma County Tourism’s National Sales Manager overseeing the Southern California, Southwest, and Colorado regions. We thought you may want to learn more about Nancy, so we’ve asked her write a bio about herself below. Welcome Nancy!
Nancy Garvey, National Sales Manager
Born and raised in Southern California (Orange County), my career in hospitality began during college while working part time for the Turnip Rose, a well respected catering company located in the city of Orange. During that time I was inspired and moved by my passion and love for the hospitality industry so I changed my career direction and began pursuing hospitality management and sales.
My experience spans from catering sales at the Doubletree Hotel, Costa Mesa (now known as Hilton Costa Mesa), Sales Manager at the Double Hotel, Anaheim Orange County, and Senior Sales Manager at Doubletree Guest Suites Anaheim Resort, and lastly at the Hilton Sonoma Wine Country as Group Sales Manager for the past three (3) years. I have served as a Board Member and Committee Chair in key hospitality organizations such as CalSAE, WomanSage, SGMP and membership in MPI. In 2014 I earned my CTA and SGMP certifications. This position with SCT is offering me an opportunity to do what I love, selling Sonoma County and to return back home to my family in Orange County.
Please welcome the newest "member" of the SCT Family! Our National Sales Manager Jamie Ward's son Weston Scott Ward was born on January 21st, 2015. Everyone is healthy and happy. Jamie has just returned from maternity leave, and looks forward to working with you all again! Please contact her for any of your needs in her market now that she has returned to work. Congratulations Ward family!
