Since my days at James Madison University in 2010 I have been producing unique experiences all over the world. If you are looking for someone who does not balk under pressure, lives in the little details, and organizes like Marie Kondo, you have found her for your next project.
Most recently I spent 2020 learning the world of virtual event production through studios, international speakers, and custom webpage builds. In a world reacting to a pandemic when all physical doors were closed we started opening digital ones. Through my client’s at MCI I produced these events from my apartment in Sydney, Australia broadcasting out to the country and the world.
In 2019 I had the unique experience to produce custom conferences, galas, social dinners, and incentive trips in Sydney. With groups as large as 10,000 to as small as 60 we creatived exclusive unique experiences for our guests across all of Australia.
Before leaving New York City, I worked at LeadDog Marketing Group as an Account Manager for 3 years. Throughout my time, I worked with the some of the biggest brands in retail, food and beverage, and the non-profit space. In these accounts I managed the budgets, fabrications, staffing, logistics surrounding load in and programming onsite touching the lives of thousands of New Yorkers.
In January of 2014 I moved to New York City to start my next adventure as Event Logistics Coordinator with Metropolitan Hospitality for the New York 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.
Back in Washington DC, I worked at LivingSocial as the the D.C. Event Manager in the Entertainment department for 2 years. Here I created 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. Custom beer festivals, white water rafting trips, and wine tasting horse back riding tours were produced across the DMV area.
My first role out of university was as Event and Travel Coordinator for LivingSocial. In my position I helped plan unique events, travel logistics, and accommodation for the company during conferences, hiring processes, inventive trips. From Hawaii to Nashville to Chicago I created custom experiences from DC and then executed them onsite.
In May 2011 I graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelor of Art’s in Media Arts and Design, concentration in Corporate Communication, with a double minor in Spanish and Music Industry.
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.
