A San Diego native, Xzantinique (Taz) graduated from San Diego State University in 2017, then began a new adventure in Seattle, first starting her career as a Sales Management Trainee with Hyatt. She then moved on to her current role in Sales at the Washington State Convention Center where she combines her passion for helping others to achieve their goals while using her talents to help positively impact the Seattle travel/tourism community through assisting the sales team.  

After her first international trip to Bali experiencing the friendly and vibrant culture, and scenic sights, she discovered that she wanted to explore the world around her, rather than just her backyard. Taking a photography class in high school she gained an affinity for photography and seeing the world through a lens. Living in the evergreen Pacific Northwest, Xzantinique hopes to capture the natural beauty here and wherever her travels take her around the globe. Xzantinique is thrilled to be on the board for YTP-SEA and not only gain valuable experience and expand her own knowledge, but also help others get involved within the industry at every level.
