Meet Mary Eggert

Digital Marketing Coordinator

The Backstory

As a high school student, Mary took all opportunities to travel with educational programs to explore different parts of the world- Italy, the British Isles, Australia, and New Zealand. Through these trips, Mary discovered a spark of passion surrounding travel operations and tour itineraries, which inspired her to find a career in the tourism field. In May of 2022, she graduated from Niagara University where she studied Hospitality and Tourism Management, as well as French.

Professional path

Aside from her studies, Mary learned a lot as an intern for Costa Rica Surf Trip, a small tour company located in a coastal beach town called Samara. Through the virtual internship, she gained a lot of knowledge about the tourism industry and how to promote tours and experiences through digital marketing. Throughout her college career, Mary spent over two years working as a front desk agent at a Courtyard by Marriott, including during the height of Covid-19. At this position she learned the ropes of the hotel industry, as well as the importance of customer service and attention to detail. As a new college graduate, Mary is thrilled to start a new journey with BTI as the Digital Marketing Coordinator and to continue working in an industry that she loves.

Inside the office she loves:
Learning more about the industry from such an amazing and friendly team!

Outside the office she loves:
Baking and cooking! Learning French and Korean, researching about other cultures, and interviewing friends from around the world. Also, her co-worker and assistant, her pug Cozy.
