We’re excited to introduce this week’s Event 360 Teammate Spotlight. Enjoy a glimpse into the personal and professional life of Courtney Jones!
Position: Digital & Social Media Specialist
Start Year: 2017
What job did you hold right before you came to work at Event 360? I worked with digital and social media for retail clients at J Miller Marketing.
What brought you to Event 360? I was excited for the opportunity to work at an event planning company, especially after all of the great things I heard about the company culture.
If you weren’t working at Event 360 what would you be doing? I would like to think I’d still be working with digital and social media, getting to run accounts for multiple clients.
Favorite part of your job? The best part of my job is working for non-profit clients. It’s great getting to work in a field I am passionate about and the work is going towards some amazing causes!
What do you like to do in your free time? I love to travel when I can. I also enjoy being outdoors during the warmer seasons doing something active, and in the colder weather I like binging on a Netflix series snuggled up with my puppy, Remy.
What do you most look forward to about being on-event? I’m really looking forward to going on my first event and seeing the final product. There are so many things that go into planning events, so it will be great seeing it all come together and meeting so many of the passionate people who attend.
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? I live an hour Northwest of Chicago in the city of Crystal Lake. If I was showing off my hometown to a friend we would go on a walk around the lake followed by a boat ride, kayaking or paddle boarding. After that we would go to downtown Crystal Lake to do some shopping at the boutiques and enjoy a great farm-to-table meal at Duke’s on the patio.
What three things are we guaranteed to find in your bag? I always have Burt’s Bees chapstick, gum and a phone charger.
One word to describe Event 360? Exciting!
