Hassell noted, “It is an honor to be here in Dominica and to oversee the overall marketing activities of Destination Dominica especially during these challenging times that the travel and tourism industry is experiencing. My task is ensuring that the visitor arrivals and on-island spend are amplified in addition to improving the visitor on- island experience and making sure that the world knows about Dominica.”

Her goal is to inspire the DDA Marketing team members and work closely with the private sector and stakeholders to create truly unique guest experiences.
