Born in Eastern NC, I have always had a love for the Ocean. The sound of the waves, the smell of the salt air, the feel of the sun on my face. After graduating from East Carolina University (Go Pirates Arrghh!), I took my love of the water to one of the most beautiful places in the country, the Florida Keys.

Hawks Cay Resort was my first home when I started my Sales journey, 8 years ago. My experience has taken me from covering Key Largo to Key West, however, my heart always belonged to Hawks Cay Resort. I just recently signed on as the Director of Sales and am excited to sharing my home with you and your guests. I hope to make it feel like yours as well.

Regional Director of Sales and Marketing

Born and raised in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, my parents were both in the yachting industry, so growing up on boats was really a way of life. Becoming the Regional Director of Group Sales and Marketing, I merged life lessons from my two loves – sails and sales –to foster togetherness in my team. Everything I’ve learned about team dynamics, I learned from competitive sailing. I sailed in and out of the Coast Guard Academy before studying literature, philosophy, and theology at Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida.

After leaving the Coast Guard, I worked on a private sailing yacht where my first customer was none other than Key West native, Jimmy Buffet. Naturally, working in the Florida Keys and Hawks Cay became a dream of mine, when Benchmark became the Management Company in February 2020 that dream became a reality. Aside from my sense of humor, my claim to fame is the ability to bring together a constantly shifting, mostly remote sales team in a cohesive force of energy and ingenuity.
