Job Title: Owner/Co-Founder


How long have you been in the events and hospitality industry?
Since 2012! Really started in the corporate/hospitality industry in 2014 though.

Why did you join MPI?
To deepen our industry connections and meet even more people face-to-face in our (formerly) growing industry!

What do you hope to get from your MPI Tennessee membership?
LOCAL is so important to our small business. We want to work with people here and in this state to produce the best events possible. And nothing can replace vendors and suppliers helping each other! MPI is such a great medium for facilitating that, and I can't wait for in-person meetings to commence again so we can continue to help each other (and TN) grow.

What is your favorite meeting or event you have been involved in and why?
I had only just joined MPI before the COVID-19 crash cancelled my first 2020 in-person event, but I really liked the MPI meeting last fall where we did a trick or treat networking activity with business cards. Such a fun idea!

Tell us more about yourself…hobbies, little known fact, etc.
I'm from Columbus, Ohio, so I'll always be a Buckeye at heart. O-H!

It's ironic that I live in Nashville, Music City, and I don't actually do anything musical since that IS my passion. I play the piano, I sing (I was in show choir + I was director of my a cappella group in college), and I'm also a tap dancer. I miss just singing for fun, but everyone's trying to 'make it' here, so I just don't do it anymore. Takes the fun right out of it!

I'm also the eldest of 4 and I adore my giant fur baby and my real baby (who's now 3, crazy). My husband is faculty at Vanderbilt, and we both got our undergraduate and graduate degrees from Vanderbilt (that's what brought me to Music City in 2004).
Family is everything to me, as are friends. And what I love about this industry is that I've made SO MANY new friends through the Meetings and Events world in Nashville. You all ROCK!

What would you sing at karaoke night?
I'm a 90's girl all day long, so definitely something from No Doubt's Tragic Kingdom. Or Celine Dion/Whitney Houston if we were a few drinks in...I mean, LEGENDS.

What makes you laugh the most?
What a good question! Ridiculous movies are definitely what make me laugh the most. Top 5 off the top of my head: 1. Dumb and Dumber, 2. The Hangover, 3. Wedding Crashers, 4. I Feel Pretty (Amy Schumer), and 5. Christmas Vacation. I'm very high brow.

Which decade do you love the most and why?
90's for sure! Hanging out at the movie theater, Delia's catalogues, '90s jams, dance parties, baggy clothes, chokers and chunky shoes, discmans, AIM and ridiculous screen names...what more could you ask for?!

You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it? Diet Coke? Sushi? Scotch Tape?
Wine. Wine. Wine. Studying abroad in Tuscany ruined me for life.
