Lori Patterson Bio
Biography: Lori Patterson
I have been privileged to work with Carnival Corporation as a Business Development Manager for Holland America line since 2000 here in Ontario. My sales territory is Eastern Canada so I spend a great deal of time travelling and visiting travel agents to talk about my passion, Cruising!   Before I worked with Holland America Line, I was a Travel Agent in Alberta, where I was born and raised, for 20 years and was very lucky to have travelled and cruised to many parts of the world which has been a great gift.  
When I am not cruising or travelling for work, I love to spend time with my husband, Doug and daughter Savanah who just left for university life!  So we will have a little more time to cruise!
We are avid skiers and hikers, and our dog keeps us walking on the Georgian Trail daily at our home in the Blue Mountains!
