Meet Tina Morrison

By: Tina Morrison

Athens-Limestone County Tourism would like to introduce our new employee, Tina Morrison. Tina was born and raised here in Limestone County and is a graduate of West Limestone High School. She joined a global engineering construction company for the Browns Ferry project in the early 1990s and moved away from North Alabama. She traveled, lived and worked all over the US and in London, Australia, and Mexico.

Tina found her love of tourism while serving as the Director of the Perdido Key, FL Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center for 7 years. During her tenure there, she obtained a one million dollar tourism promotional grant to bring visitors back to the beach after the 2010 oil spill. She also planned, coordinated, and executed over 20 major festivals and events. She was featured on Animal Planet’s TANKED TV show when she had a 450-gallon pirate ship fish tank installed inside the Visitors Center, making it a destination location.

In 2020, Tina was employed with the Florida Agricultural Museum as the events director and was coordinating events like square dances, the Florida Beverage Festival, and Farm-to-Table events before COVID canceled them. Tina decided to return back home to Limestone County to be closer to family and is absolutely thrilled about her new employment with Athens-Limestone County Tourism. “My world travels definitely helped me realize what a gem we have in our small Southern town and helped me relate to what visitors are looking for. I love tourism and I love Athens-Limestone Alabama and this opportunity for me to promote tourism in my hometown is simply a dream come true.”

Tina has three grown children and three precious granddaughters. Her hobbies are music, camping, hiking, biking, and kayaking. She will be assisting the tourism president, Teresa Todd, with marketing, events, and day-to-day operations of the Athens-Limestone Visitors Center at 100 N. Beaty St. in Athens. Please join us as we welcome Tina to the team.
