What do you love about your job?
I am very passionate about event planning, even in my personal life. I love that I get to come to work every day and do what I love. Being on a team with great leadership and people who have the same passionate energy about the events we put on makes me love my job even more.
What do you like about working at TBI?
I like how TBI is truly a community. Each department works with one another in some way, shape or form. We all support, encourage, and are are willing to drop what we are doing in an instant to help anyone in the company.

What is a key tidbit you give to others?
Put yourself out there, push your limits, and just go for it because amazing things happen when you do. There is nothing worse than living life with regret and looking back, asking, "what if?"
Favorite vacation/getaway destination?
My favorite vacation to get away is Maui, Hawaii. My family has a time share there and we used to go almost every year growing up. It was always a vacation I looked forward to going on with my family. And, let's be honest, no matter how many times you go, you really never get sick of it. It is an amazing vacation spot to rewind and unplug.
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
It would be great if I had the superpower of teleportation and could get anywhere in an instant. No long flights or sitting in traffic. It would also help considering I am always running late...
