Kathleen has worked on all sides of the meeting & events industry in her 17-year professional career, and she has been involved in event planning and fundraising since her teenage years. After graduating from Pennsylvania State University in 2000 (WE ARE!!!), college friends recruited her to move to Chicago, and she's been here since.  Kathleen has held positions as a meeting/event planner for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the National Marine Manufacturers Association, is currently self-employed as a meeting planner and is also a member of the Experient independent network.  She has also served in sales and account management positions for other industry organizations.   Kathleen attributes many of her career opportunities and successes to her involvement with MPI, as she has grown both personally and professionally as an active member and volunteer since joining the organization in 2010.  She has served as co-chair of several committees and has been a member of the MPI-CAC Board of Directors since 2015.   In her free time, Kathleen enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and her dogs, volunteering for animal rescue organizations, traveling and following her Penn State Nittany Lion football team.
