headshot_board_maffucciNancy MaffucciDirector of Sales
Bowlero Corp

Nancy is a native of the East Coast growing up in Queens, NY and Hazlet, N.J. She has been in the event planning industry since College, where she studied at Towson University in Baltimore, Maryland. She started out in the music business working for Polygram Records as their Mid Atlantic College Representative planning concerts and promotions for the labels artists. Upon graduation from college she moved back to New Jersey where worked for an independent music label in NYC called Iguana Records.

Wanting a complete change in scenery Nancy picked up and moved to Colorado Springs in 2000 and started working as the Promotions Director for the rock radio station 94.3 KILO. There she was involved with planning large concerts that came to town as well as planning and executing station promotions and giveaways.

headshot_board_sadriStephanie Sadri
Manager, Global Accounts

Stephanie joined the hospitality industry at a young age. She began in restaurants and evolved into the event and catering world. Stephanie’s first Sales and Catering management role was at Invesco Field. Not only did she work like a horse on Bronco’s game days, but she planned all of their private events and worked on a little event you may have heard of, the Democratic National Convention. After leaving Invesco, she went on to work at several fantastic venues, the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, the Oxford Hotel and The Curtis Hotel. Her eclectic well rounded experience has made her an expert in many facets of the industry and is currently a Global Accounts Manager with HelmsBriscoe.

A member of MPI since 2013, Stephanie is entering her 5th year on the Board of Directors. Her previous roles had her involved with the Golf Tournament, Auction, Education and Communications.

Here are few things you will learn about Stephanie if you ever have the pleasure of working with her:

  1. Her husband is a diehard University of Kansas Jayhawk, so she has adopted the Rock Chalk mantra since denying it was futile
  2. Be careful when opening your desk drawers because she probably hid something in there with the intention of terrifying you. She will claim total innocence and blame it on someone else, but we all know that she did it
  3. If you need to brighten your day, just check Stephanie’s Facebook page because she probably updated it in the last few minutes with an adorable photo of her son Noah, daughter Emma or fur baby Daisy.
  4. She is always available for cooking advice since she is likely preparing a gourmet meal for her husband and children that evening. Unfortunately, she rarely shares leftovers with her coworkers
  5. Don’t waste movie quotes on her, because there is a 90% chance she has never seen or heard of the movie you are attempting to quote


headshot_board_rainsDana Rains, CMP


Dana is a native of neighboring Nebraska and a Cornhusker fan at heart – her love for the mountains and all things outdoors brought her to Colorado in 2004. While Dana’s past career in youth ministry involved much hospitality and event planning – her hospitality career began in earnest that fall when she joined the Keystone Resort & Conference Center sales team as their receptionist. Always eager to learn more about the business and up for a challenge, she was quickly promoted to a coordinator position. From there, more hands on meeting and event planning, managing tradeshow logistics and a wide variety of other tasks led Dana to pursue her CMP designation in 2011. In March of 2012, Dana was promoted to be a Sales Manager at Keystone Resort & Conference Center.

Dana’s past involvement with MPI includes coordinating the chapter’s monthly community service project with Project Angel Heart and editing the chapter newsletter.

In her free time, Dana and her basset hound/bulldog mix Norm can often be found in the mountains – enjoying the outdoors, or at the sewing machine creating quilts and other crafty projects.

Sales Manager
The Ridgeline Hotel Estes Park, CO


Rebecca Sosa unknowingly got into the hospitality industry when she crafted her mom’s 40th birthday while in high school growing up in Ecuador. Rebecca returned to her home state of Texas to go to Baylor University to earn a degree in Telecommunications and Spanish. After many summers of coming to Colorado to backpack, camp, rock climb and mountain bike, she packed her green Volvo, named Molly and moved to Boulder. Rebecca has worn many hats in the hospitality business from being the front desk manager at a high end spa in Boulder, to running an offsite catering company and finally ending up, after living in Argentina and Chile for a year, at her first Catering Sales position at the DoubleTree Westminster followed by being on the opening team of The Curtis hotel, and then ended up at the Hyatt Regency in Denver. She has now been at the Ameristar Casino Resort Spa as their Business Development Manager for the past year and a half and has jumped into being active with MPI, PCMA and Destination Colorado.
