Hello! I am a seasoned events professional with over 15 years’ experience. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to produce and manage various events, including brand activations, festivals, roadshows, product launches, conferences, meetings, incentive and business travel, along with unique destination and VIP experiences. My diverse role as a producer, planner, and project manager has allowed me to develop and deliver fresh and innovative solutions that are curated for each experience. I am delighted to jump right in and assist where needed as I am well equipped for any event related endeavor.
Currently, I am hired to assist in various capacities, becoming an "extension of the current team" to provide guidance, help, and support. Depending on the needs, I have produced the entire event from concept to completion or taken on a specific role, such as venue and supplier sourcing, pre-production, onsite management, registration, volunteer coordination, food and beverage/menu planning, BEO review/guarantees, budget, budgets, budgeting, ancillary and team building programming, offsite excursions and events, transportation, unique experiences, onsite staffing, support services, hospitality manager, onsite manager, tradeshow/booth staff, sponsorship sales, create sponsor prospectus and packages, sales, product launch, multi city tours, sport events (the big game, golf tournaments, etc.) hotel and travel bookings, operations, scheduling, destination management, grand openings, community events, galas, reception, customer events, VIP or unique experience events, team/staff trainings, etc. I am delighted to take on any role and have been responsible for producing or supporting over 600 events ranging from intimate in size and scope (5 people) to over 10,000+ attendees.
Clients range from associations, civic/community groups, corporate, festivals, sporting events, restaurants, to personal/leisure/independent travel. MICE/FIT/Corporate.
Interestingly, I was able to earn the international accreditation of being a Certified Special Events Professional (CSEP) in 2013. Established in 1933, the CSEP designation recognizes event professionals who have successfully demonstrated the essential knowledge, skills, and ability required to plan and execute all components of a variety of special events. I recertified in 2018.
Having a Bachelors Degree in Communications from UNLV and certificates in conference management and event planning, as well as in event design and production from The International School of Hospitality (TISOH) means I am well equipped for any event or program. I also serve as an instructor for an event design and production course at the International School of Hospitality, teaching aspiring event coordinators event skills, best practices, and techniques. Recently I obtained an Executive Certificate in Hospitality and Tourism Management for FAU.
My passion for events shines through in my ability to build personal connections with clients (and their guests/customers/partners/attendees), creating memorable and meaningful experiences. The most rewarding part of my profession is seeing every detail of a well-planned event come together through passionate teamwork, delighting the participants, creating lasting and measurable results.
I look forward to connecting with you to discuss your event related needs and vision.
