Hello, my name is Braley Hand. I was born and raised here in Amarillo and while I’ve dabbled living in a few other places, Amarillo has always been my home. I started working as a part-time service counselor at the Amarillo Visitor Information Center in Dec 2013 and was promoted to manager in July 2016. I am now the Tourism Coordinator at the Amarillo Convention and Visitors Council. I love meeting and visiting with our guests from all over the world and want to help make your trip wonderful.
