AUTONOMOUS was founded on the belief that being Independent allows us to make better decisions because we know our business best. Our team works to source clients target market, develop and close new business for our clients without the challenge of global sales hierarchy and the limitations of chain wide programs.
We bring together the best of the industry’s Independent Contractors, each with 20 plus years experience, who are experts in each solution. With years of consulting experience, we can provide Independent Hotels the much needed resources of direct sales representation and global sales outreach.
Being successful in an ever merging big brand environment requires more feet on the ground than most Independent hotels can afford. AUTONOMOUS offers an affordable extension to your sales team.
Being Independent allows the freedom to be creative and make decisions that are best for our business. Independent hotels are all different and offer different experiences to many types of travelers. Being Independently managed gives your sales team the ability to negotiate based on the needs of the travelers and corporate travel programs without the hierarchy and restrictions of big global brand guidelines.
Therefore, each client agreement is individually crafted as we believe One Size does not fit all. Choose one or all of our Sales & Marketing solutions and only pay for what you need. We take a personal approach to each and every project and can step into your sales organization and work with your team.
Participate in our annual sales blitz calendar, grab a spot in our booth at industry trade show exhibitions, network at an evening travel agent receptions or let us directly source new corporate business for your hotel. Just some of the great benefits of our services.

26 years and counting; the hotel industry is in my blood.
When I branched out on my own 7 years ago, it was not only to find balance in my life as a mom and business woman but to help as many hotels as I could stay Independent and be successful against the big chain and branded hotels expansion.
I knew i had the knowledge and experience to help multiple hotels go the extra mile to be successful.
I founded AUTONOMOUS to show Independent hotels how maximize their potential on the GDS channel and navigate the ever changing Managed Travel industry. AUTONOMOUS for me is a chance to partner up with some of our industries best so I can create more opportunities for direct exposure, new account acquisition, and put forward amazing hotels that deserve a chance to be known. I also know that it is hard for the young talent entering our industry today to open doors and get in front of decision makers. My goal is that AUTONOMOUS can not only make those introductions, build relationships and bring new business to deserving hotels, but help develop some of our future sales superstars and make a few friends along the way!
