Hello! Destination Management Director of National Resources Julie Mezzina left behind an exciting career as a TV producer in Chicago to move to Orlando. Find out why she wouldn’t have it any other way!

My definition of One Perfect Day in Orlando is relaxing outside without any humidity with a glass of wine in my hand!


I chose to make Orlando my home because I fell in love with my boyfriend (now husband of 10 years) who lived in Orlando.  Three months after moving here I started at Hello!.  Now because of my husband, two girls and my Hello! Family, 14 years later Orlando is officially home!


People would be surprised to know that there is a lot more to Orlando than theme parks!   Great restaurants, quaint neighborhoods and incredibly friendly people!

In my opinion, Il Pescatore is the most authentic and DELICIOUS Italian Restaurant in Orlando. The Linguini Calamari is incredible, a visit to this local family owned restaurant is a must!
