    Project Manager, Meetings and Events

    United States - Last active: 05/05/2014

    My career path has taken me from a financial analyst to a product manager, task manager, management associate and Project Manager, Meetings and Events. This path has allowed me the opportunity to become a well-rounded business associate, focused on meetings and events (my passion). I have demonstrated skills and abilities to manage conferences, meetings and events (small and large) and web events locally, nationally and internationally. For these events, I have developed processes and managed the entire event life cycle - from meeting conception through budget creation and management, venue contracting, vendor management, travel support, meeting logistics, on-site management and post-event reporting and financial processing. I am a Certified Government Meeting Professional, completing the certification exam in May 2009. My career journey has afforded me the opportunity to work for large corporations and small businesses. The cultures can be similar in some respects and very unique in others. Experiences gained in these organizations have been invaluable. The most rewarding experience has been in delivering exceptional customer service. I have received several accolades over my 20+ years of professional experience for exceeding expectations and ensuring that clients and customers gain a rewarding and valuable experience. I have experience working closely with all levels of management by participating on cross-functional teams, training mid-level managers on how to evaluate value-adding projects and delivering business unit projections to senior management. My approach to meetings and conferences from a business/project management standpoint has provided an added value to clients. I am confident that I could bring value to your organization. Most recently, I managed a 4-day, 400 person education conference for the United States government agency.
