What I do: I’m a dynamic business operations leader specializing in brand development, strategic planning, venue/hotel sourcing, destination site selection, program operations management, staff leadership, efficient contract negotiations, and profit and loss forecasting. These skills assist me in delivering optimal and memorable board meetings, conferences, congresses, conventions, forums, gala celebrations, incentive programs, retreats, seminars, special events, summits, symposiums, tournaments and trade shows.
Impressive stats: I’ve planned events in more than 35 countries; established a Western citywide trade show/conference brand and geo-adapted it in 11 countries; provided event service solutions to organizations for programs that attracted a range of 50 to 50,000 attendees; and managed global events, business operations, registration services and worldwide development partnerships for an international trade company worth $20 million in annual revenue.
What I’m working on now: Currently, I’m working with a national government law enforcement group focusing on strategizing, negotiating and organizing their annual citywide conference and exhibition.
What I do outside of work: I am an avid cook and like to create new and unique dishes. I am very active with PCMA in New York and am on the Corporate Task Force. I love to travel and look forward to collecting more stamps in my passport!
