Women Travel Better in Pairs - 48 Hour Episode
Developing with Marston Smith.Northern Neck-The Tides Inn Series
We welcome Marston Smith, development manager for the Tides Inn: Unique Family Ties
Marston is overseeing the extensive shoreline restoration – a $3.6M project in its first phase.
This is very rare for a hotel or resort to invest this much money into an environmental project and he may have a fresh face but he knows his stuff.
Marston is truly excited to bring a smile to work everyday and this job is an interesting "homecoming" for Marston as he shares with us his connection to this "special" place on the Northern Neck.
A massive environmental-giving-back revitalization.
