Welcome to the maximice family, ladies!
Our family is growing and today we would like to introduce our two recent members in our Valencia office, Jessica Meixner and Cristina Patteson.
“If culture was a house, then language was the key to the front door, (…)” by Kahled Hosseini. “That’s what I am here for”, assures Jessica and continues: “I want to connect the German culture with the Spanish one and demonstrate that Spain/Valencia and surroundings have much more delights than fiesta and siesta.” She is so right! Jessica was born and raised in Germany, lived 6 months in Peru before starting university and spent 4 months in England for an internship. During university she gained her first experiences in the tourism sector working as a culinary tour guide in the old town of Augsburg.
After her studies of Linguistics, she worked 3 years in the automotive sector organizing events on different racetracks all over Europe. And now she is in Valencia, enthusiastic to widen people’s horizon creating and offering unforgettable experiences, the perfect combination of meeting, culture and activity that represent the Spanish lifestyle; enjoying life, vivir la vida.
Cristina, on the other hand, was born and raised in Valencia, however her father´s British costumes were always very present in their education and she spent long periods of time with her English side of the family. “I love my city, its history, culture & gastronomy and feel as a truly Valencian example for all those who want to learn about the local customs, such as Fallas” she says enthusiastically. She belongs to a Falla since she was a child and she participates in all activities they organize to promote that festivity. Right after finishing her degree in Tourism in Valencia, she decided to move to the UK to start there her professional career. She worked in some of the best hotels in London and specialized in MICE Sales.
Her passion for travelling & the hotel industry also took her to the UAE, where she organized Groups & Events in Abu Dhabi for 2 years. She brings to maximice 15 years of experience in the MICE business with special knowledge of hotel handling and her passion for Valencia as a perfect event destination for our clients.
