Since Emory

I made my way to the wonderful world of corporate event planning and am now a Certified Meeting Professional. I plan global events including meetings, trade shows, conferences, hospitality events, corporate PR events, incentive trips and anything else with attendees. I've worked on both the corporate side and the agency side of planning and I've been fortunate to manage programs all over Europe as well as in Asia and the Middle East.

Current activities

Cooking, world travel, board member for Friends of Theater at Emory and Theater du Reve

Highlights at Emory

Learning that the 1989 Romanian revolution was largely a smokescreen thanks to a new play directed by Vinnie Murphy, learning to sing in Yoruba in Tegonni: An African Antigone, gaining amazing insight and professionalism from the incredible faculty and professional guest artists

In retrospect

Everything I learned in theater at Emory I have used to help further my professional career; I learned to work as a team, to respect others, to be on time, to listen, to react, to think on my feet, to look for creative solutions, to respect the people behind the scenes as well as those in front, to think critically and look below the surface, to make difficult choices and not always go for the easy option.
