What was your first job in the tourism (or related) industry?  Michell Salinas

This is my very first exciting job in tourism. I am excited to be a part of the DMAI team and learn all about the business. 

What 3 things are always in your suitcase?

Three things that are always in my suitcase are a toothbrush, a pair of sneakers, and hair brush.

What is your best travel tip?

My best travel tip is to leave my worries back at home so I can have a stress-free vacation.

Aisle or Window, and why?

Window most definitely. I like to lay to my left side to rest my head and look outdoors to the clouds.

Planes, trains or automobiles?

I would go on either anytime. I would prefer to drive or be driven. Planes and trains make my ears pop.

What do you like to do with your free time?

I like to spend time with my family & friends. I enjoy hiking at Great Falls & Sugarloaf Mountains. I love to travel! So far I have only been out of the country the times I traveled to Argentina. I had the opportunity to go to Argentina to see my family after I graduated.

What is your favorite quote?

“The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.”

If you could have a super power, what would it be?

 If I could have a super power, I would fly. I could save money if I did not have to drive, and get to places faster.
