She is passionate about building collaborative relationships, providing strategic project, marketing, and financial management that reduces costs and risk to help her clients’ achieve their goals.
For over 11 years, Tina served as the Director of Meeting Management for Cambium Learning Group. She directed a $4 million dollar budget and a team of six meeting planners and registrars who produced over 30 meetings annually. These included 15 annual multi-day Summer Institutes located across the United States and 20 conferences in Germany and Japan to fulfill a contract with the Department of Defense Education Division. At that point in time, Cambium recruited her from an association management company based in Colorado where she produced annual meetings and trade shows, ranging between 800 to 2,500 attendees and 20 to 150 exhibitors, for the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, the North American Nature Photography Association, and the Society for Scholarly Publishing.
Tina took the entrepreneurial leap seven years ago and started her own successful meeting management company — Compass Meeting Planning, LLC.
She earned her Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) certification in 2007 and holds a BS in Business with an emphasis in Marketing from Regis University, Denver, CO. Tina is an avid golfer, foodie, loves traveling to new places, and spending time with her family and friends – especially near or in the ocean.
