I first met with her after she landed a sales job with the Charlotte Convention and Visitors Bureau in 1998. At that time, the city of Charlotte was on the verge of becoming a nationally known city and the bureau was playing a key role in marketing the Queen City under the leadership of Mr. Melvin Tennant - first African-American head of the bureau. I had landed in Charlotte over a decade earlier and was very excited about all the new opportunities that are associated with finally being mentioned on the national weather map. I had the pleasure of working with Ms. Brice on entertaining many motorcoach groups that she convinced to visit Charlotte. I remember her excitement and passion for her job as she provided my company with many tour and transportation leads.
