Meet Johnice Veals

Volunteer Member Spotlight: Johnice Veals

How and when did you get your start in the events industry?
Honestly, fell into it. My first job was working in the HR Department for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, I started as a Training Coordinator planning conferences and workshops all over the state. I loved it so much I starting looking for more event focused positions and I haven’t stopped. It’s truly a dream job for me. 

What is your current position and how has your MPI membership helped you in your career path?
I’m currently the Senior Events Manager at Vertex Pharmaceuticals. I think everyone knows MPI can help build your network and I love that, but the biggest impact for me is the educational opportunities. They’ve helped me gain new skills and enrich my knowledge as a planner. 

What are some things you like to do outside of work?
You can usually find me in my kitchen trying new recipes or traveling. I’m headed to Uganda and Kenya in December, so if you have any recommendations, please send them my way! :)

Tell us something about yourself we (probably) don’t know!
I sang in a band for 2 years. 

When and why did you start volunteering for MPI?
I started volunteering a few months ago. I was looking to engage more with the MPI NE community and get the most of out my membership. It was a great decision, I already feel supported and more connected. I highly recommend it. 

Why should others volunteer with MPI?
If you’re looking for ways to connect with the event community and get the most out of your membership join a committee, you won’t regret it!
