SPOTLIGHT
How long have you been with your
current organization and/or in your
current position?
I have been with the Greater Palm
Springs CVB for a year and a half, but
I have been selling in our amazing
destination for 14 years!
How did you hear about associations
as a career choice? What brought
you to your current organization?
I came from the event side previously
and always thought I would enjoy the
relationship that sales cultivate with
their association customers. Working
for the Greater Palm Springs CVB,
I have the opportunity to partner
with the very best sales professionals
and collaborate with the incredible
association clients to find the best fit
for the planner and their organization. I
am very fortunate and grateful to have
found my ideal position here!
What's your hometown? Where
were you raised?
I grew up in a small town in Upstate
New York, New Hartford, New York
which is just outside of Utica.

Anne Marie Mourhess
National Sales Manager
Greater Palm Springs CVB

What do you do to relax? Hobbies?
I am an endorphin "junkie" and
obsessed with getting my daily workout
in. If I get my workout in, I am relaxed
and energized to best serve my clients.
What's your favorite type of food?
I love snacks, but I try to eat healthy
foods. Chips, salsa and guacamole are
my weaknesses!
Do you speak any languages besides
English?
I studied French and Italian, but
speaking them is a stretch. It has been
years since I have practiced.
Do you have any kids? Pets?
I have two wonderful, sweet, smart,
handsome boys, Jackson who is 11 years
old and Sammy who is 8 years old. I
also have a crazy dog, Buster, that we
affectionately call Bubba. We think he
may be a Chigi Chihuahua/Corgi mix,
but who knows!

to Stagecoach. My go-to workout and
driving music is '90s grunge or Top 40.
What's your favorite guilty pleasure?
Not to scare customers away, but I
have to admit I love watching the Real
Housewives franchise.
If you could meet any famous person
or historical figure, who would it be
and what would you ask/tell him/her?
It would be Walt Disney. I would ask
him: Is this how you imagined your
legacy would be? Were you really
dreaming this big?
What's your favorite quote?
"If you can dream it, you can do it." -
Walt Disney

What was the last movie you saw in
the theatre and loved?
Wonder Woman and really loved it!
What's your favorite singer or band?
I don't have one favorite. I like all
kinds of music, especially live music.
Greater Palm Springs has the most
amazing music festivals, from Coachella
