What I do: My responsibilities include managing an extensive event portfolio, with a focus on millennial and Gen Z engagement tactics and programs. I also run our onboarding, training and development program as it relates to events, as well our internship and student development initiatives. The bulk of my time is spent planning, coordinating, and executing national and international conferences, which is what I love most. There is no greater feeling than watching all of the pieces of this ever-changing puzzle that is your event come together.

How I got here: My event management experience began in New York City working for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia in the corporate events department. After my time there, I returned to my hometown of Toronto to accept a position as event coordinator with an established event and association management company, and I remained there for almost four years. Last year, I made the move to Redstone, where I am contributing to the development of our event department from the ground up.

My greatest career accomplishment: I’m most proud of the trajectory of my career. In five short years, I have grown from an event coordinator with a simple portfolio of events to director of events at a leading event management agency.
