The award was presented to Davis at the annual Tourism Vancouver Island ceremonies to showcase the best of Vancouver Island tourism representatives and businesses.

The awards ceremony was held at the Best Western Premier Prestige Oceanfront Resort in Sooke.

Dave Petryk, President and CEO of Tourism Vancouver Island said: “The MVP Award recognizes an individual or a tourism business that has demonstrated a commitment to the growth of tourism through outstanding contributions to Tourism Vancouver Island.

Davis has worked for Tourism Campbell River for 12 years and has sat on the association’s marketing board for as long as she can remember. She said she was “excited and humbled” to be selected for the award.
