Solutions &  Strategy Consulting LLC. is a Travel Management group dedicated to establishing strong travel management programs, no matter the size, the footprint or the complexity. From selecting the right partners though RFP to setting corporate travel policy or ensuring optimal traveler engagement, we bring expertise and structured roadmaps to the success of your program.


The idea of Solutions & Strategy came from the realization that in today's environment, companies' structures change rapidly and the function and scope of travel management is changing as well. Utilizing outside expertise can be the best way to refocus internal resources. We are able to quickly identify the gaps and the opportunities that those changes are bringing to organizations and we leverage our extensive knowledge to consult on travel department structure, needs and objectives. Solutions & Strategy can easily supplement your existing internal travel management resources, work on specific projects, or even geography, or we can provide full travel program solutions. While we have the knowledge of a variety of types of Travel Programs, we believe in customized solutions. We believe the solid foundation of a travel program that will guarantee cost control and unique travel experience starts with a clear vision of the goals and objectives, bringing best-in-class recommendations and professional execution.

A result-driven travel professional with more than 15 years of experience in travel management, hospitality and strategic meeting management, I have experience and proven success in setting and supporting travel management solutions on a global scale. While I can help identify opportunities to improve tactical efficiency, my role is to focus on a strategic vision for your travel program. I believe in developing customized solutions and the importance of building strong partnerships. Second to being a creative problem-solver, I enjoy the trust and teamwork that I have built with my clients. Outside of the office, I keep informed on industry trends, stay connected with key stakeholders and am a Board Member of SVBTA (Silicon Valley Business Travel Association). I have earned the Certified Travel Professional Certification from GBTA.
