您是如何开始在这个行业工作的?

I started out in advertising and account management, but in my heart, I knew I wanted to do something to give back to my city and roots. I took a job with Kentucky Derby Festival, then transitioned to Churchill Downs Racetrack where I worked in sales for a few years, and then ultimately landed at the CVB on the Convention Sales team. It was at the CVB (now Louisville Tourism), where I have found my home. Being able to sell the city I love and where I was born and raised makes work not feel like a job, it’s honestly just a part of who I am. Getting to share those sentiments with my customers as they consider Louisville as a destination for their show or convention, is truly the icing on the cake.

您会给新成员什么建议?

Sign up for it ALL! The webinars,分会活动, the meetups, the conferences, etc. Attend everything you can and soak it all in. Speaking from personal experience, you’ll start to see familiar names and faces, and the relationships will naturally fall in to place, simply for being present and engaging with others.

关于您的有趣事实——大多数人不知道您的什么事情?

I have been married for 11 years and I am a mom of 3 young kiddos ages 5, 5, and 3. We also have 2 Labrador retrievers. My house is complete chaos – which is why I am well versed in every type of bourbon Kentucky has to offer. Cheers!

您认为 #1 IAEE 会员福利是什么?

I think the saying “We all rise by lifting others”, is quite fitting for this industry. I have never been a part of an organization that is so supportive of one another. It doesn’t matter if you are a supplier, show organizer, independent contractor – at the end of the day, we are all human, we are all people, and everyone is rooting for the success of others because that’s how we can ensure the industry continues to rise. It’s a unique benefit that I’m grateful to be a part of.

你最喜欢什么 博览会!博览会!?

Oh that’s easy, the bourbon in our booth. (see you in Philly!) Kidding! My favorite part about Expo! Expo! is getting to put faces with names of people I work with all year.

如果不指定公司名称,市场上有哪些新技术是你离不开的?为什么?

The one where you can order things and they just show up at your front door in 2 days.
