What job did you hold right before you came to work at Event 360?
Prior to Event 360, I spent three years at the Colorado Rockies MiLB ballpark. My time at the stadium was split between being an Events Coordinator for all non-MiLB baseball games such as weddings, fundraising walks, high school baseball games, graduations, corporate meetings, high school summits, Bar Mitzvahs, and pretty much any other event you might think of. The other half of my time at the park was in the back of the house, where I was the Assistant Director of Premium Catering, managing 20 premium suites and picnic areas on game days and all food and beverage during events.
Was there anything in particular that brought you to Event 360?
The company culture, the incredible work that was being done nationwide, and the strong practice of work-life balance.
If you weren’t working at Event 360 what would you be doing?
I’d probably be spending the majority of my time gardening and creating wedding invitations (my hobby!).
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time you can find me sitting in the sun, taking long walks, playing trivia with friends, and practicing yoga.
Most memorable event experience?
My most memorable event experience would have to be staffing the St. Jude Walk/Run in the Twin Cities last year. During the ceremony you could just feel the energy and love throughout the entire park!
Best event production advice you’ve been given?
Working in the event industry, you’re generally an individual that notices the details. When executing an event, things will go wrong or not look as perfect as you would like them to be. The reality of it is, we see it as event professionals, but the participants never do.
How do you practice self-care during a busy event season?
Sticking to a routine while home, breathing exercises, and enjoying time with loved ones.
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?
The first stop would definitely be dirt style wings at J. Timothy’s Tavern here in Plainville, Connecticut. We would also need to spend some time sitting on a blanket in the field at Hawk Ridge Winery.
On event, what three things are we guaranteed to find in your bag?
A sharpie, Liquid IV, and a Cliff bar.
