Senior Tourism Consultant
Joined LGL in 2009
Maureen Garrity joined LGL in 2009. She brings to LGL over 25 years of experience in the tourism industry as an eco‑tourism operator and guide, and as a tourism consultant assisting First Nations, communities and other organizations to develop or enhance their tourism industry. Her experience in tourism began as a lead guide and manager of eco tourism businesses operating in the Yukon, Alaska, Mexico, and Antarctica. There she learned the skills required to identify tourism values, to understand tourists’ expectations and to both develop and manage safe and successful businesses.
Maureen’s consulting career has focused largely on tourism planning and development in which she assisted First Nations, communities, and other organizations to develop their commercial tourism industries within regional, provincial, and global contexts. Maureen has developed tourism planning and marketing strategies, and has helped communities through planning and implementation of strategic tourism initiatives.
Maureen’s interest in working with people led her to complete studies in alternative dispute resolution, and solution‑focused coaching. This skill set has served her well in facilitating group meetings, coaching and mentoring individuals, and assisting to resolve a range of disputes.
