“I’m an advocate of the hotel owner as there is alot the brands don’t educate hotels about. I pick up where the brands stop to maximize incremental return to YOUR hotel and market. My strengths lie in account management, knowing the brands’ platforms and connecting the online world with operations, sales and revenue management.” ~ Stephanie Sparks Smith
