Half way through 2018 I quit my job in NYC and relocated to Australia. In Sydney I joined MCI Group in producing conferences, galas, social dinners and incentive trips to Sydney. With groups as large as 10,000 to as small as 60 we creative exclusive unique experiences for our guests. In those 6 months I was able to work at some of the best venues in Sydney.

From July 2015 until May 2018 I worked at LeadDog Marketing Group as an Account Manager. Throughout my time here I have worked with the following brands activating sponsorship events; BET, Coca Cola, smartwater, Reebok, Macy’s, Susan G Komen, Friends of Hudson River Park, Competitor Group’s Rock n Roll Half Marathon, and Chipotle. In these accounts I have managed the budgets, fabrications, staffing, logistics surrounding load in and programming onsite.

In January of 2014 I moved to NYC to start my next adventure as
Event Logistics Coordinator with Metropolitan Hospitality for the NY Mets. In each of these non-game day events I managed the logistical elements and communicated between departments at Citi Field and the client to ensure the ballpark’s integrity was maintained while the event went smoothly.

From 2012 to 2014 I worked at LivingSocial as the the D.C. Event Manager in the Entertainment department. The city manager and I work together to create one of a kind experiences for customers to purchase in the DC area. From staffing to on site organization I planned the A-Z intricate details of the event or Adventure.   beerfest

From 2011 – 2012 I worked as Event and Travel Coordinator for LivingSocial.  In my position I helped plan unique events for the company during conferences.  I managed the negotiation to implementation stage on a majority of them. I researched and set up cost conscious unique evening events in each city for the attendees. These conferences occurred all over the United States for a variety of different LivingSocial employees.

In May 2011 I graduated from James Madison University with a degree in Media Arts and Design, concentration in Corporate Communication, with a double minor in Spanish and Music Industry.

My minor in the music industry gave me a great understanding of the basics.  In my Artist Management class, I gained real world knowledge by interviewing Randy Nichols, manager of The Starting Line, Underoath and many more.

At JMU, I was the director of Center Stage, our concert production club on campus. I have helped produce over 15 concerts at JMU, booking 6 myself, 3 of which sold out.  I managed a budget of $170,000 budget to allocate throughout the year. I awarded Executive Council Member of the Year my senior year.

In 2009 I had an internship with Live Nation as the booking intern in the Manassas office, Jiffy Lube Live. This experience taught me how booking multiple venues works. While working with the talent buyer, Ted Mankin, I learned how booking large-scale events goes from receiving the contract to watching the band perform on the stage.
