What I do: I provide all meeting, tournament, event and conference planners in the Rochester, New York, area with resources throughout the planning process while creating a memorable experience for each of their attendees.

How I got here: I started my hospitality career as an intern at Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center. I was hired at Visit Rochester in 2013 and have been given many growth opportunities, leading to my current role.

Greatest career accomplishment: Recognition as a Young Person on the Move by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society of Upstate New York Chapter is one of the greatest honors I have received.

Impressive stats: The event services department has exceeded annual goals for the last three years, including tripling the impact of stay-extension programs, collectively growing leads issued to tourism partners and doubling the number of survey responses from convening groups.

What I am working on: In 2018, my team and I will focus on community giveback programs to allow groups to leave an impact in the local community upon departure.

What I do outside of work: Outside of work, you can find me enjoying time with my family and friends, playing golf and enjoying the outdoors. I also sit as chair-elect for the Rochester Area Administrators of Volunteer Services and as a task force member of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society: Canandaigua Walk Site.
