From the very start, Annie Yu was a globetrotter.
Born in New Jersey, raised in Taiwan, and then back state-side again to attend high school in New Hampshire, Annie graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a B.S. in Psychology and Health Care Social Issues. In college, she studied abroad in Siena, Italy - a small town located in the heart of Tuscany, where she discovered her love for wine.
Hospitality took Annie by surprise; as a pre-Med student, it wasn't until her senior year she started to explore career opportunities that could combine her love for travel and culture. Determined to find a way into the industry (without knowing anyone!), she went to wedding trade shows to network and eventually landed a role as an Event Assistant for a wedding planner in San Diego. From there, Annie went on to work for The Grand Del Mar in San Diego, eventually crossing back over to the East Coast in 2015 to explore the corporate side of hospitality at Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts. She currently works in the New York Worldwide Sales Office.
When out of the office, you can usually find Annie either hosting a party or on the next flight out. Her passion for people and travel are aligned, for she is happiest when meeting new people and learning about new walks of life. Annie has visited over twenty countries and does not plan on stopping anytime soon!
