Lisa-Marie Upton brings 30 years of professional hospitality industry experience to her role as Travel Broker with BarterPay.
Lisa-Marie began working as a travel consultant in her native Muskoka, eventually moving to Toronto where she worked in a corporate agency specializing in group travel. The wine industry lured her away to Niagara where she earned her Wine Certificate of Merit while working for Andrew Peller Ltd at Hillebrand Estates Winery.
Once acquiring her Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) designation, she was recruited by White Oaks Conference Resort as their Sales & Catering Manager. Lisa-Marie continued to gain extensive sales and planning experience in a diverse network of North American market sectors while representing other local Wineries, Conference Centres & Resort Hotels and Convention Centres. As an Account Director for Niagara Falls Business Events, Lisa-Marie most recently served as a Niagara Region Destination Specialist and spent the last six years leading sales missions and hosting client events in many Canadian capital cities where she consistently provided service excellence.
A veteran international traveler, several of Lisa-Marie’s favorite destinations include Ireland, Europe, Costa Rica and Australia. In addition to traveling abroad and event planning, Lisa-Marie enjoys golf, cooking and curling. She likes spending time with her family and is an active volunteer within her community.
What I love about working in hospitality is that it's constantly changing. Things are never the same on any given day.
