Following her hotel tenure, in 1988 Carolyn expanded her career in the meetings industry as an Advertising and Marketing Manager for Meetings & Conventions Magazine and The Official Meeting Facilities Guide. For more than fifteen years, she learned every facet of the industry as she covered 17 Western states. She collaborated with destinations, hotel chains, individual properties and advertising agencies to create multi-faceted advertising and marketing programs. She made the President’s Club for sales multiple times and enjoyed experiencing incentive trips as one of the guests.
While working for M&C Magazine, Carolyn moved to Park City where she could be in a small mountain town, telecommute and still be close to an International airport for all of her travels.
Her next venture in the hospitality world was building, owning and operating a Bed & Breakfast in Park City with her husband. Woodside Inn B&B was part of her life for 12 years. Carolyn has held various positions with the Park City Chamber/CVB and she now serves as the Senior National Sales Manager.
Carolyn is a graduate of Pepperdine University Malibu with dual majors in Communication and Recreation Education. She is a member of Meeting Professionals International.
Her favorite part of her job is introducing people to Park City, because as Carolyn explains: “Once people see it, they get it.” She enjoys taking the time to help them adjust to the higher elevations and to find all the resources they need so they can enjoy an “elevated” experience when planning their meetings. The most important part of her job, as Carolyn explains, is keeping a positive attitude and being flexible. Carolyn loves working with people and is passionate about her clients and partners; and about her home, Park City!
