My (current) favorite way to grab life by the moments is enjoying a glass of Monterey County wine for happy hour with my husband on our sailboat taking in the sunset over the ocean and stroll to dinner at one of the nearby wharf restaurants.

What I like most about Monterey County… (hard to pick just one) but I’d have to say the memorable culinary experiences along the coast.


Strategic Client Services

Marissa Reader

Director of Strategic Client Services

My favorite moments in Monterey County are early morning hikes in the spring when all the hills are lush and green and the lupines are blooming.


Marketing Communications

Kimber Tabscott

Community Relations and Visitor Services

Jeniffer Kocher, CDME

Director of Community Relations

My favorite place to grab life by the moments is Marina State Beach. You can often see whales with the naked eye and dolphin super pods jumping into the air.

The best part of my job is helping visitors take home memorable moments from the Monterey Peninsula.

George Hayes

Destination Specialist

What I enjoy most about Monterey County is the uninterupted beauty linking the coastline from Fisherman's Wharf thru Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, and Carmel, to Point Lobos - an inspiring network of wonder and awe.

Pam Tanous

Destination Specialist

What I like most about Monterey County is it’s vivid history with the Custom House being the oldest Public building in California. Our colorful Fisherman’s Wharf built in 1846 and the spectacular ambiance of it today. The restaurants owned by local families adds to the history and familiarity of it today. Walking the Path of History always gives me joy to know that our historical buildings are still here for all to enjoy.


Paul Martin

Vice President of Finance and Regulatory Affairs

I love attending events at the Monterey County fairgrounds. There’s the California Roots Festival in May, the County Fair and the world famous Jazz Festival in September, and BaconFest in July – mmmmm bacon! Don’t forget the Beer Festival and the Scottish Games.


Jennifer Johnson, CDME, SHRM-CP

Vice President of Operations

My favorite moment in Monterey County was at the Monterey Zoo. Feeding the elephants while staying overnight at Vision Quest is a unique experience that shouldn’t be missed.


Rob O'Keefe

President & CEO

My favorite moments in Monterey are when my toes are in the sand, with the sun on my face and a warm breeze to soothe the soul.
