1. What is your ILEA Story? 

I joined ILEA just a couple months ago and jumped right in as a committee member. Deciding to get involved right away opened so many doors for me, and has created amazing relationships. I was given the opportunity to join the board as Director of Special Events which has afforded me the opportunity to network and grow significantly. I look forward to seeing what my ILEA future holds!

2. Describe your Leadership style in 3 Words. 

Organized, Innovative, Welcoming  

3. If you could choose 1 song to play every time you walk into the office, what would it be? 

Welcome to New York by Taylor Swift

4. What's your biggest piece of advice for those considering joining ILEA? 

Dive right in and get involved! The best decision I made was joining ILEA and getting on the committee for Liberty Gala! I learned so much in just a few short weeks.


The Mission of ILEA is to educate, advance and promote the special events industry and its network of professionals along with related industries. Learn more.
