New Member Spotlight – Edelyn Parker


By: MPI Ohio | Jul 19, 2018

Edelyn Parker
Red Roof 

Who are the most important people in your life? My absolutely amazing, supportive, creative, hyper-intelligent, hilarious, and very handsome fiancé, Don. He is my best friend and the love of my life. We consider ourselves pretty lucky!

Who do you work for and what is your role? I am the Brand Marketing Manager for Red Roof.

What is the best thing about your job? The best thing about my job is how closely I get to work with so many people who are intensely passionate about hospitality and service. There is never a doubt in my mind that my coworkers care about Red Roof and its clients and guests.

What are the 3 most important skills you use at work? Organization, communication, creativity

What one piece of advice would you give to someone beginning their career in the Meeting Industry? When faced with a problem, remain calm. Be flexible and resourceful – every problem has a solution if you’re present enough to examine the problem from all angles.

What super-power would you love to have to help you do your job better? The power to read minds… when a client says they want one thing, but they actually mean something totally different. I would like to know what that totally different thing is.

Email:, I can be found on facebook as “edelyn.parker” or Instagram as “edelynparker”—both are private accounts, but if you seek me out and introduce yourself as an MPI member, I’ll gladly let you in my social media world.

As a new member, we want to make sure you get the most out of your membership and feel welcomed into our community of meeting professionals. It is our mission to provide innovative and relevant education & networking opportunities as well as business exchanges. From time to time we like to highlight our new members to help introduce them into our member network.
