Other information:

What do I do? Help clients create over 1200 successful events held inside the Longaberger Alumni House each year.  

Where I work: The Longaberger Alumni House is home to The Ohio State University Alumni Association as well as a conference center.   We have 7 spaces that accommodate groups up to 200 guests.  Our focus is accommodating meetings for The Ohio University and private events for our Alumni.

How and Why I got on the Board: I was looking for opportunities for greater engagement with ILEA when a position opened for Finance Director. This position currently aligns with my a portion of my work responsibilities so it seemed like a nice fit.

What's so great about ILEA? ILEA allows event professionals to gain knowledge from other experts in the industry through the educational sessions and then through the social activities you can create your own support network.   

My Favorite ILEA Memory or Moment: I have fond memories of joining with ISES Columbus members on the road for ISES Live and EventWorld! Dallas and San Francisco especially!
