Holly Losey - Marketing Guru, Guide
Holly is a terminator studmuffin in marketing and PR. Holly was a developing partner at Vertical PR, is currently head of marketing at Sevilla Restaurant Chain, and assists in our PR and marketing efforts here at OIT. In her down time, she blogs on her highly acclaimed blog GlamourMash.com and was also named one of San Diego's leading "Women Who Mean Business" finalists by the San Diego Business Journal in 2013. Holly isn't all work and no play - she's a wild child, loves to cook and is better traveled than most luggage. She earned her Master’s degree in Marketing from San Diego State University and just celebrated her 30th birthday! Holly is sweet as pie and is so excited to be guiding the group in Pamplona!
Clint Losey - Guide
Clint is a one very special and fun-loving fellow, and his humor and wit will wow you! Clint joins us from San Diego, CA and his travels include Thailand, Japan, and Boise, Idaho, to name a few. He heads to the Kentucky Derby annually, and he has been to the Burning Man Festival outside of Reno, NV 15 times! He is a professional good time guy and he does enjoy a good dress up. He owns a Hollywood quality ELF costume (yes, the one that Will Farrell wears in ELF the Christmas movie) and several Star Wars and Batman costumes as well - he takes his Halloweens very seriously :) Clint is thrilled to be guiding OIT guests this year for Pamplona 2017, and if you like Batman and Star Wars, you can chat with Clint for hours!
Sarah Chavez - Legal
On top of being an Account Manager for Oktoberfest Insider Tours, Sarah is also a licensed attorney, having obtained her degree from UCLA and her Law degree from Pace University Law School in New York. After attorney'ing for several years, she leapt into a new career - that as a teacher to 11th and 12th grade high schoolers. She oversees key accounts and handles legal operations at Oktoberfest Insider Tours, and like everyone at OIT, Sarah loves to travel and seeks out new experiences every chance she gets. Sarah loves animals, will forever consider herself a New Yorker, and is enjoying her new roll as a Mama to baby Eve.
Jacqui Gray - Account Manager and Guide
This adventurous Aussie is our globe trotting expert. The list of places she has lived and visited around the world is staggering - it would be easier to ask her where she hasn't been. Always smiling and ready for more fun, our guests love her enthusiasm for life and adventures.
Jacqui is always on the move. Researching events, destinations, places to eat and drink, meeting our local contacts and bringing together a fun and thoughtfully planned out itinerary for our guest - or as she says "Our Insider Family". Sounds like the best job in the world right? Absolutely! But what she loves most is making an appearance at each tour and meeting the new members of the Insider family. To Jacqui bringing people together from around the world, to share in an amazing experience, helping creating memories that last a life time and making new friendships, well it just doesn't get better than that!
The newest addition to the Insider team, Louie takes delight in distracting us and occasionally running muddy paws all over beautifully printed itineraries. He is no where near as well travelled as the rest of the team but enjoys a comfortable time playing and napping. Unfortunately, he does't make it on tour to meet you all, but he is an important part of our behind the scenes Insider family.
