Patti launched her career in tourism as founder/managing partner of MOTIVATORS, TRAVEL INDUSTRY CONSULTANTS in Brussels, Belgium. Targeting the European travel industry and media, she designed and implemented marketing and public relations campaigns to stimulate interest 'in' and generate travel 'to' American city, state, and association clients.

Effecting tourism growth remained a focus when she relocated to the USA at top-ranked Deer Valley Resort, Utah Travel Connection and the Utah Office of Tourism. Program success required comprehensive understanding of tour product development from property inspections, price negotiations, day-to-day itinerary scheduling to tour marketing and promotions. For Utah, she created and executed over 1,000 carefully-crafted media visits providing over $70 million in earned media coverage.

Patti worked with Disney to promote the Wild West to international audiences via major motion pictures. She created themed tours to complement movies including the "Out of This World" tours to promote John Carter and "Find Your Inner Tonto" tours to promote The Lone Ranger. Patti designed and escorted "Mighty Five" national park tours, cultural and heritage programs, adventure tours, ski safaris and city tours for the state of Utah.

She has led trade delegations to worldwide destinations including the United Kingdom, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, Germany, Scandinavia, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, China and Taiwan. With an unyielding passion for travel, Patti is seeking opportunities to share new experiences and stories with like minded adventure seekers.
