Villa Rica CVB & Welcome Center
Sharon Dupont serves as Tourism Manager of the Villa Rica Convention & Visitors Bureau and Welcome Center. Her career with the visitor’s bureau began in August 2016 as Tourism and Main Street Program Coordinator. Since moving to Georgia in 2005, Sharon has continued to learn and grow in the tourism industry earning certifications as a Travel Marketing Professional through Southeast Tourism Society Marketing College, Travel Consultant through US Travel, and a Certified Professional Wedding Consultant through the Association of Certified Professional Wedding Consultants. Villa Rica has a rich history that is vital to the state of Georgia and Sharon’s goal is share that history along with its attraction Pine Mountain Gold Museum.
Sharon has a Bachelor’s Degree in Religion and Biblical Counseling and hopes to open a counseling center when she retires from tourism. She is the mother two adult children, Jordan and Mary Catherine. When she’s not spending time with family and friends, you will find her reading or listening to music. A Gullah/Geechee born and bred, she loves the smell of salt marshes and fresh seafood, so she never turns down a visit to the Georgia coast.
