Helping Others Succeed
MEET THE TEAM
It's more than just a name. The ABC in ABC Social Solutions stands for Alana, Byron, and their dog, Coconut. It was important for them to incorporate their little family into their business venture. The team has grown since, but the idea that they are in this together has remained the same.
Alana was born and raised in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and always had a thirst for adventure. She moved to St. Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands at the age of 19 with Byron Bell. In the USVI, it was easy for her to find herself in the Travel + Tourism industry as a zipline tour guide. It was there where she landed her first social media managing job and fell in love with the field. Soon after, she expanded her network and started working in the hotels as a wedding coordinator's assistant and as in in-house social media specialist. Since then, she started ABC Social Solutions, moved back to the states, and is always finding time to travel and do what she loves.

Byron is your jack of all trades and all hobies. His deep background in business development and hospitality drive him to deliver the highest level of customer experience. Traveling and working with Alana and Coconut is the most rewarding part of the great adventure which is ABC Social Solutions.
Customer Service Director
Coconut was only a year and a half when she was found roaming the landfill on St. Thomas, USVI. Byron and Alana took her in while they were living on island and she quickly became an important 3rd member of their family. She now happily resides in the states, and takes on the winter with a brave face, puffy coat, and adorable booties.
