The Hot Sheet Blog is written by staffers of the Greater Phoenix Convention and Visitors Bureau. It’s all of our best places to go and things to do!

Melissa is the vice president of marketing, communications and tourism and now thinks that she should be able to add “blogger” to her business card. She loves to share her wisdom about Phoenix’s great boutiques and “mom and pop” restaurants to anyone who will listen. And she’s an animal lover and advocate, so she’ll talk your ear off about that too.

Scott is the senior director of marketing and communications for Visit Phoenix. A native of Tennessee, he now lives, works and plays in downtown Phoenix. As a rule, he prefers outside to inside, and he’s always on the lookout for good BBQ, secret hiking trails, and watering holes with dog-friendly patios.

Nina is the online marketing manager for Visit Phoenix.  As a native Phoenician, Nina obsessively shares her love for Phoenix through blogging, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and whatever is new and next in social media.

Chad is the marketing assistant for Visit Phoenix. He’s a native Phoenician who has been teeing it up at local golf courses since he was a kid and is always looking for new hiking trails to traverse. He can tell you where to find the best cookies and iced tea in town, but will have to leave the coffee recommendations to someone else. He still hasn’t figured out how to train his cats to hike with him.
