I am an experienced professional within the Events Management and Digital Marketing industries.
Here you will find my professional experiences, accomplishments and blog.
A little about me: I was born and raised in Michigan. I went to college at Ferris State University enrolled as a dual-major in Computer Information Systems and Recreation & Tourism. After a few semesters with 21 credit hours or more, I decided to condense my areas of study into a single Integrative Studies degree which allowed me to custom tailor my education and prepare me with the knowledge of computer technologies, business management and recreation services for my initially intended career in the tourism industry. After college, I traveled briefly throughout North America as professional outdoor/adventure guide before relocating to San Francisco, CA.
In San Francisco, I continued to guide trips but also became involved in a young, social events start-up. In a short amount of time, I went from a contractor to a full-time manager and minority partner. During my time, I was the Operations Manager, running all the day-to-day aspects of the company and managing a staff of 6. I helped plan and execute an average of 35-40 events every month for groups ranging in size of 5 to 500. I also was hired by large corporate companies to help plan their own events and retreats including Google and KPMG.
In 2009, I moved to Columbus, OH to start my own company that was an off-shoot of the San Francisco company. With the help of only 1 intern, I created and managed my second company from scratch and attended to every facet of the business from events to marketing to web IT to finances. I have been featured in many media outlets (both in the Bay Area and in Columbus). Toward the end of the 2011 summer, I sold the business to pursue opportunities abroad.
Now, I have found my way to a new life in Hong Kong. I am still going strong within the events and digital marketing industries. To see more about me and what I’m working on, check out my profile on LinkedIn.
