Name a person with whom you most would want to have dinner:
I cannot pick just one!  Currently on my dinner party list: Britney Spears, Steve Jobs, Brene Brown, Rachel Hollis, Reese Witherspoon and Oprah!

My first job was as an intern at SunGard financial – I took sorting the mail and making sure the copy paper was filled that summer very seriously! For over the past ten years I have been in the meeting and event industry working with many different organizations planning and executing events ranging from 5 to 20,000 attendees with a strong focus on strategy development and learning design. My passion is to think bigger and look for new ways to create a great experience or solve a problem for our attendees.

My Life at AALU:
I am responsible all the meetings and events logistics that take place at AALU. My main goal is to implement innovation solution to design and produce memorable events that deliver lasting meaning and personal value for every participant that extends beyond the closing session.
