Business Development Executive
While studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Beth Friedman had her first taste of hospitality when participating in a public relations internship in London. The work focused on promoting and protecting several historic sites and tourism destinations - from day one she was hooked. When she returned to the US she was determined to create a career that involved seeing the world and helping others do the same. Successful in that pursuit, she became a marketing professional for the travel industry promoting brands and experiences for hotels, resorts, cruise lines, tour operators, and destinations. Beth also served as a luxury travel advisor planning family vacations, honeymoons, ’trips of a lifetime’ and weekend getaways.
Originally from New York, Beth moved to Santa Monica, CA while working with a travel industry media company. Her infrequently used beach home sparked an interest in vacation home rentals, so she created her first STR business hosting travelers from all over the world. This has translated well to her work at Walker Luxury Vacation Rentals.
The culinary arts have been a another inspiration in Beth’s life. She’s an adventurous diner who will try anything once and loves learning about other cultures by experiencing their cuisine. She’s a great home-cook, loves experimenting in the kitchen, and hosting friends and family.
Beth settled in Austin with her family and 7 year old rescue pup named Bodie. She is passionate about animals, has volunteered with a much-loved rescue organization, and is on the lookout for the next addition to their family.
Beth’s motto is #calmisasuperpower and she maintains this in her life (most of the time) by living mindfully and meditating everyday.
