Other information:

What do I do? I plan and produce events for OSU CFAES Advancement, Alumni Relations and Academic Affairs

Where I work: I work on the Ohio State Columbus Campus

How and why I got on the board: I was referred for a board position by Tracy Moran. I wanted to become a board member because I believe the Columbus ILEA Chapter has been successful at building its membership, retaining its members and setting an example for professionals, not only in Columbus, but worldwide. I have a great deal of respect for the past and current officers.

What's so great about ILEA? I believe ILEA is a great organization because it attracts talented, dedicated and creative event professionals and helps promote the special event industry worldwide.

My Favorite ILEA Memory or Moment: My favorite ILEA memory was when my name was called for my first ILEA Esprit Award win in New Orleans, LA, in 2015. I looked around the table to be sure it was me they called and not my hopeful imagination. I realized it was me when my Columbus Chapter friends jumped up to cheer me on!
