Amanda Gilmour

What job did you hold right before you came to work at Event 360? I was a student at Indiana University and a guacamole making master for Chipotle Mexican Grill.

Was there anything in particular that brought you to Event 360? I have always been passionate about giving back to my community and, fittingly, I attended many walk events before working for Event 360 so finding the position seemed like an absolute dream.

If you weren’t working at Event 360 what would you be doing? If Event 360 hadn’t welcomed me to the family, I would be in law school right now or still making bellies everywhere very happy with my burrito rolling skills.

Favorite part of your job? Getting to hear so many people’s amazing stories about why they participate in walk, bike, and muck events and knowing I am helping to create a lifelong memory for our participants.

What do you like to do in your free time? I love to bake and consider myself a TV addict and a movie buff. I also love literature and enjoy curling up with a good book and getting lost in a different world.

Most memorable event experience? I haven’t experienced an event yet, but I am so excited to attend my first MuckFest® MS event!

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’m brand new to Chicago so if I were showing off my little Floridian town called Port Saint Lucie I would show off the amazing beach just minutes down the road, my favorite ocean front farmer’s market, and a little local restaurant named Sushi Naiya that has the best Thai food I’ve ever been able to discover.

On event, what three things are we guaranteed to find in your bag? Bottle of water, chapstick, and my good luck Puck the Muck Duck.

One word to describe Event 360? Fulfilling
