Hello, I’m Debra B. Jolma

Event Strategist, ESN


I believe in partnerships. A valuable business relationship is a two-way street. Through honest and open communication, by listening and hearing I create not just partnerships, but trusting relationships with my clients. This trust allows us to connect, dig deep into what is really at the core of each meeting and execute events that are valuable and relevant. As a life-long hospitality professional, I understand the ins and outs of hotel sales from catering to overnight accommodations to programming. My extensive hotel knowledge and my sincere drive to help my clients makes me a great partner. And thanks to the collective data and knowledge secured by contracting 4.6 million room nights annually, you can be confident you are receiving the optimum combination of rates, concessions, and terms every time.

“By some stroke of luck, we learned about Experient two years ago. It began with an inquiry to find a new location for one of our events and has blossomed into a relationship that is akin to having extended our staff! Experient uses their expertise to thoroughly investigate properties, to provide timely follow-ups and reminders, to negotiate contracts on our behalf, and provide candid and generous advice. Experient has taken the time and care to secure excellent locations and accommodations tailored to our needs and continue to be a tremendous resource to our organization.”

I live in Bend, OR where I am an active member of my community, my church and my environment. I love the vibe that Bend offers. It is a small social town that allows me to spend quality time with family and friends outdoors. This includes attending outdoor concerts, camping, hiking, skiing (water and snow), paddle boarding, mountain biking and, of course, experiencing the unique restaurants and food cart eateries. If I can’t be outside, I enjoy a good competitive game of cards or board game.

My Personal Statement

I am solution focused with your unique meeting needs in mind.
