What I do: I produce branded, buzzworthy educational events for associations, small businesses and entrepreneurs. I collaborate with my clients to create event experiences that do more than just inspire—they generate revenue and create change. I use event technology to make sure our events are truly experiences.

How I got here: I couldn’t land an event planner role so I decided to open my own event management company back in 2004. I began with business summits, fundraisers, university brand awareness events and weddings. Once I landed a pharmaceutical company as a client, I realized that my love of events combined with my kinesiology degree and interest in medical education is a true skill set. From there, my focus went to professional development education, and I began producing medical education and more professional development conferences.
