Yvonne Collazo, CIS

Associate Director of Sales

Originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico, Yvonne chose to pursue her college education in New Orleans. Needless to say, she fell in love with the city, and she chose to stay for many years until family and work responsibilities called her away. After working for hotels in great hospitality cities such as Orlando, Las Vegas, Nashville, Atlanta, and San Diego, Yvonne returned to New Orleans and is thrilled to be back. Yvonne has over 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry, having spent those years in the events, catering, and hotel group sales fields – so a move to the DMC world was the next logical career step! After three years with Hosts New Orleans, Yvonne is thriving as an Account Executive. She is proud to be a part of such a successful and dynamic team and to represent such a unique city!
