How did you get your start in the industry?
I was looking to get out of banking and sort of fell into event planning through my best friends mom who was looking to hire an office manager for her event planning company.  The rest as they say is history.

How many years have you been in the industry?

11 years

What is your favorite thing about our industry?
I love how no two events are ever really the same.  I love seeing how things evolve over time and all the new trends that come out constantly.  The event industry is so exciting, one’s imagination and the different possibilities are endless!

What is the best career advice you’ve received?
The grass isn’t always greener on the other side, its greenest where you water it. That statement has pushed me and gotten me through some trying times.  It helps push me past challenges that seemed insurmountable.

What is the most memorable event you have planned or client experience you have had?
The most memorable events of are the ones where I’ve been able to work with First Class event professionals.  I love working with other event professionals who are innovative & cutting edge. 

If you were not in this industry, what would you be doing right now?
I think that  If I wasn’t in my current position, I’d like to think that I would have my own event production company.  Or, I think that perhaps I’d be a TV host on E! 

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in New York (Staten Island) and moved to Old Bridge, NJ Freshman year of high school.

What is your favorite city to travel to and why?

I love Las Vegas, there is always something fun and exciting to do there, plus the number of events that come out Vegas is truly mind-blowing.  I also really love Miami; I’m constantly in awe of creative event looks and ideas that come out of Miami. 

Which three words describe you best?
Honest, Loyal, Hardworking

What do you love about MPI NJ?
I love the diversity.  Going to the networking events and the educational programs have become a great source of inspiration.  Getting to meet all the members throughout the different chapters and hearing their experiences and knowledge have become so motivating.  I love learning new things related to the events industry through the experts in the field. It may sound silly, but I can get quite shy in new surroundings so networking isn’t my strong suit, but when it comes to attending the meetup events and going to the educational seminars, I feel like I come out of my shell because I’m talking to others who “get  it”.  Everyone thus far has been so pleasant, it only makes me keep coming back for more!
