OTD Welcomes Three New Staff Members

The last few months have been a time of growth at OTD as three new members joined the team. Research Analyst Rianna Wan came on board in August after more than ten years with Language Logic. Wan has degrees from Beijing Shi Yan College in China and Daito Bunka University in Japan and studied English at the University of Wisconsin. In September, Daesha Stark joined OTD as the Communications/Marketing Administrative Specialist. Stark is a 2020 graduate of the University of Maryland Global Campus and had worked previously with Assurant Solutions as Data Coordinator. Julia Bouie joined the OTD team in November. Bouie serves as Executive Assistant to Liz Fitzsimmons, Managing Director, TFA, and as Tourism Development Board Liaison. Bouie studied at Towson University and has been a state employee for three years, transferring to OTD from another agency. We warmly welcome all three of our new staff members and look forward to working side by side with them as we promote Maryland’s unique tourism assets.
