How did you get your start in the industry?
My start in the hospitality industry was many years ago as I worked at a retirement home during high school. It was there I learned I wanted to be in an industry that allowed you to connect with people. 

How many years have you been in the industry?
15 Years

What is your favorite thing about our industry?
We have the ability to meet people from all over the country and the world. 

What is the best career advice you've received?
Keep an open mind as you never know what door it will open. 

What is the most memorable event you have planned or client experience you have had?
Each year, we host our own Annual Luncheon wish is a celebration of hospitality and a recap of our year. The event has grown to be the event of the year for our members and we've transformed some unique places such as a school gym. 

If you were not in this industry, what would you be doing right now?
Education has always been an interest an I think I'd be a teacher if I wasn't in hospitality. 

Where did you grow up?
I'm originally from Rochester, NY but grew up in Lansdale, PA. 

What is your all-time favorite movie?
My all-time favorite movie is certainly Office Space. 

Describe your perfect day off?
We have a 3 year old and I'm realizing time is going to fast. A perfect day off is spending it with him and appreciating the smaller things. 

What do you love about MPI NJ?
My first experience was at the MEETS Conference and I couldn't get over how many members came up and said thank you.  It was such a warm welcome. 

What are you most excited about in joining MPI NJ?
Networking and meeting at face to face events.
