Carrie Ford Roseville Visitors Association

The Roseville Visitors Association is mourning the loss of our colleague and friend, Carrie Donovan Ford. Carrie has been with the Roseville Visitors Association since its inception in 2000. Prior to that, she first interned and worked for Visit Duluth fresh out of college.

Carrie loved her group tour market, working with all the off-season groups at the Minnesota State Fair, and all the detail-work that went into putting out our annual Visitor Guide. If you were putting together a tour group, you wanted to work with Carrie, and our yearly visitor guide was award-winning due to her attention to detail. She was a force to be reckoned with on social media and in the world of tourism leisure bloggers. Carrie was a Certified Travel Industry Specialist and very proud of helping the RVA achieve DMAP (Destination Marketing Accreditation Program) certification; she also served on the Heritage Club Board of Advisors and was a Leadership St. Paul alumna. She will be missed not only by her RVA Family, but also by the hundreds of colleagues and friends she met in the hospitality industry. Her reach extended from Minnesota to across the country.

Her love for her work was only surpassed by her love for her family. We hope there is detail-work that needs to be done in heaven, because Carrie will be all over it. IF she is not rocking out front and center at a concert!
