Steve Gonzalez - Operations, Guide
Recently having attended a Snuggie Bar Crawl, Steve knows how to have a good time! He keeps our website and tech in top form, and is of course also one of your guides for Mardi Gras 2020. Steve is a former professional athlete, having competed as goalkeeper for the LA Galaxy. He loves all things soccer, and currently coaches club teams and up-and-coming goalkeepers in the US. Steve LOVES to travel - his trip to Ibiza was one of the highlights of his travels. He is into tech, the outdoors, and you can often find him sipping a Miami Vice from Fat Tuesdays during Mardi Gras. He's outgoing and always smiling, and can't wait to hit Fat Tuesdays with you for a yard-tall slushie Hurricane in NOLA :)
Holly Losey - Marketing Guru, Guide
Holly is a terminator studmuffin in marketing and PR. Holly was a developing partner at Vertical PR, is currently head of marketing at Sevilla Restaurant Chain, and assists in our PR and marketing efforts here at MGIT. In her down time, she blogs on her highly acclaimed blog GlamourMash.com and was also named one of San Diego's leading "Women Who Mean Business" finalists by the San Diego Business Journal in 2013. Holly isn't all work and no play - she's a wild child, loves to cook and is better traveled than most luggage. She earned her Master’s degree in Marketing from San Diego State University and just celebrated her 32nd birthday! Holly is sweet as pie and is so excited to be guiding the group for Mardi Gras 2020!
Clint Losey - Intern, Guide
Clint is a one very special and fun-loving fellow, and his humor and wit will wow you! Clint joins us from San Diego, CA and his travels include Thailand, Japan, and Boise, Idaho, to name a few.

Sarah Chavez - Account Manager, Legal
On top of being an Account Manager for Mardi Gras Insider Tours, Sarah is also a licensed attorney, having obtained her degree from UCLA and her Law degree from Pace University Law School in New York. After attorney'ing for several years, she leapt into a new career - that as a teacher to 11th and 12th grade high schoolers. She oversees key accounts and handles legal operations at Mardi Gras Insider Tours, and like everyone at Mardi Gras Insider Tours, Sarah loves to travel and seeks out new experiences every chance she gets. Upon her first visit to New Orleans several years ago, she fell in love with the city and it's spice for life, fun, and constant over-the-top celebration. Sarah loves animals, will forever consider herself a New Yorker, and is enjoying her new roll as a Mama to baby Eve.
