When she was a young girl in high school, her father sat her down to explain to her that she was to act like a lady and not a Tomboy. This seemingly unfavorable quality however, has served her well for the past 20 years since she has been in the Audio Visual Industry; which is predominantly male.
Though her degree was in business management, Tina Reedy began her career after college as a Meeting Planner for a medical education company. She planned continuing education events for 10+ years and embraced the world of hospitality. She briefly left the industry after welcoming her first of 2 sons to the world.
In 2000 she was pulled back into the hospitality industry when her husband asked her to provide business operations support to his company, TRAVIS Inc. That is where her professional title of First Lady of A/V stems from. Her passion for meeting management coupled with her past experience has been instrumental in understanding client needs to deliver stellar results. Since she has become a team member of TRAVIS Inc., where she is able to translate meeting planner speak into A/V lingo.
Tina currently shares her A/V experience and knowledge with the industry by being an active member of Meeting Professionals International, Chicago Area Chapter. She served as the 2012 TechCon Committee Chair and on the MPI-CAC Board of Directors 2013-2015. Currently, Tina serves in the Office of the President acting Immediate Past President of the chapter for fiscal year 2017-2018.
When she is not working, she spends her time driving to and from hockey rinks where she cheers her sons on. She is not your stereotypical hockey mom, she is the one in stands laughing when the kids mess up. She is level headed and knows that if you give your all and lose the game, you can walk out of the rink with your head held high. Her favorite hockey quote is from Wayne Gretzky, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” Something she uses everyday in business and in life.
