Today, our Teammate Spotlight showcases the life and mind of Tiffany Mangum! You may have caught a glimpse of her last month when she hosted Sunrise Self-Care at the P2P forum, but now she’s taking over our Event 360 Instagram tomorrow for an exclusive look at her day. Be sure to follow along!
Name: Tiffany Mangum
Position: Travel Coordinator
Start Year: 2021
What job did you hold right before you came to work at Event 360?
I was a travel coordinator at another company before this role as well.
Was there anything in particular that brought you to Event 360?
I love the event life and the people. This was my second time around with Event 360 and the fun was calling me back! Also, I’ve made great friends that are almost like family at Event 360.
If you weren’t working at Event 360 what would you be doing?
I would be managing a wellness business full-time with yoga, meditation, and sound therapy.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I love to read and write, have brunch with friends and go thrift shopping!
Most memorable event experience?
The Saturday night “Mac & Cheese” night on the 3-Day in San Diego. It’s a long day for everyone, both walkers and staff, but it’s filled with so much encouragement, so many hugs, helping hands, laughs, surprises, zip ties, shuttle buses, handwarmers, cones and signage…you name it. As the day draws to a close and you sit down for that comfort food whether you’re eating mac or something else, it’s delicious and a great reminder that we are all in this together.
How do you practice self-care during a busy event season?
I bring my travel yoga mat to every event so that I can stretch and breathe in the early mornings pre- and post-event. Meditation and journaling are my best tools to brain dump and clear my head, and to also write down the memories of the day.
You’re showing off your hometown to a friend who has never been to visit before. What’s on your must-see/do/eat list?
There’s so much to do in Chicago. You must go visit the DuSable Black History Museum and take a stroll through Hyde Park. The Bronzeville neighborhood is also home to some very cool black-owned restaurants, shopping, yoga studios, and historic theater venues. Also on the list is a Southside tour and grabbing a bite to eat at Virtue Restaurant, having a drink at Daisy’s PoBoy Tavern, shopping at the SilverRoom for some cool things, grabbing a coffee from Sip and Savor and if it’s Wednesday night, they host an open mic and wine down in the café.
On event, what three things are we guaranteed to find in your bag?
Chapstick, Leatherman, and a Sharpie.
