How did you become involved in MPI?
I was encouraged by the association I work for to join MPI and get involved. Once I joined, I attended the new member mixer and found a few committees I wanted to be involved in! From there, other members helped me find my path and make sure I was happy with the committees I was involved in.
What has been the most exciting moment or memorable thing that has happened since joining MPI?
I would say winning the “Tomorrow’s Leader Award” and also working on a new event that is now successfully in its 3rd year, The Signature Luncheon.
How did you become part of the event industry?
I used to work for Hyatt Hotels and I ran events there. I wanted to move to more of a planner role after I saw the kind of work planners were doing. It gave me the work life balance I was looking for.
How has MPI impacted your career?
MPI has helped me grow in my ways. Not only by meeting great industry people but also by getting to learn new skills. Marketing has been a skill that I didn’t get to utilize in my current job role and now know much more about with MPI.
Tell us something unique about you?
I try to take advantage of every work travel opportunity I have and make sure I do at least one adventurous trip while I'm there like kayaking, scuba diving or hiking.
