As a global experience specialist focusing on partnerships, I help our customers find the perfect home for their events. Every program has a unique set of needs and requirements. It is my responsibility to help source options so that our clients feel confident that they have the best venue for their event.

The best part of my job is that every single day is different. All of our programs have unique needs in terms of guest rooms, meeting & meal spaces, destinations, etc. I love being able to search for the perfect venue and getting to network with people from all over the world.

The key to a successful event is partnership. There will always be various challenges to work through in event planning so having an open line of communication with everyone involved in the process is crucial to the success of an event. Adaptability to changes is also vital to every program.
