FUN FACT: Back in 2020, as the world was shutting down, I was making life changes. I had hit my lowest point and highest weight of 370+ lbs. Through many ups and downs, successes and failures, I overcame the odds and lost over 140 lbs! 

EXPERIENCE: I started in 2013 in our outstanding linen department as a seasonal linen associate. I learned and adapted, quickly becoming a floor supervisor, then an Office Manager. Now, I bring all that knowledge and my background in art, love for technology, and problem-solving skills to build our brand and help our wonderful guests create memories that last a lifetime.

FUN FACT: I enjoy photographing sunsets with my drone all year long. I also think it’s special to photograph unique homes. It’s so much fun to see the transformation and results of renovations over the years.

EXPERIENCE: I joined the Bluewater Marketing Team in 2004, taking photos of Vacation Rental properties.

In addition to our in-house marketing team, we’ve stepped up our game in this increasingly competitive industry and partnered with an expert digital marketing team to help carry out locally curated initiatives and strategies. With fresh perspectives, insider industry insights, and teams with a hyper-focus on the outlets proven to maximize your property’s potential, our marketing teams are truly dedicated to your success every step of the way. Here’s a sample of what we’ve initiated to serve you better – 

Bluewater marketing conversion optimization


The average website converts less than 1% of visitors into email subscribers. With conversion optimization, we capture passive shoppers and convert them into bookings through automated drip email marketing campaigns.

Targeting Marketing for our Vacation Rental Properties


60% of leisure travelers use Google’s search engine to book their trips. We use paid search to drive targeted travelers to our website, continuously increasing direct bookings for you and gaining maximum exposure across the globe.

No more abandoned carts with our marketing


On average, 72% of online shopping carts are abandoned. We’re not leaving bookings up to chance. Instead, we’re recapturing them with sequenced emails driving guests back to their carts to complete the booking process.

Marketing Vacation Rental Properties with Display Media Remarketing


We’re leveraging our social accounts to retarget visitors who’ve been to our website. Staying in front of our travelers after they leave our website lets our brand stay top of mind, allowing us to covert directly with a higher probability.
