Audrey Steidl joined the HelmsBriscoe team as a Regional Manager in November 2004. After more than 18 years of experience with corporate, association and entertainment accounts, she is delighted to bring to her extensive client base the many resources that HelmsBriscoe has to offer. Coming from the hotel side of the hospitality industry, she particularly enjoys finding the perfect site for each client rather than the perfect client for each hotel! Her experience in the hospitality industry has established her as one of the most highly regarded sales leaders in Southern California. She has held positions as Director of Sales at several of San Diego's top hotels, including La Valencia Hotel, a Preferred Hotel of the World, and The Westgate Hotel, a Leading Hotel of the World. Through her domestic and international travel and associations, she has familiarized herself with many of the top properties in the world. Audrey served on the Board of the San Diego Business Travel Association for eight years and is currently a member of MPI.
Audrey likes spending free time with her husband (a professional photographer) and their young son. They share their home with a Pomeranian dog and a Persian cat. As a former actress and television producer, Audrey enjoys theatre, movies, and writing. Her favorite places include Italy and New Mexico.
