Interesting fact about yourself: I love to travel! I've been on 5 cruises, a class trip to Las Vegas, and I've been to Guatemala on a mission trip.


What aspects of the convention industry are you most passionate about: I am most passionate about the traveling aspect of the industry. I love that conventions are located everywhere. It gives attendees not only a reason to go to the convention for the convention itself, but to enjoy and explore a brand new city. 


What type of job would you like to pursue after graduation: I, at some point, hope to become an Event Coordinator for a cruise line. I would like to start out small though and possibly move out to Las Vegas after I graduate in December and find a job in the hospitality industry. 


If you could have dinner with anyone living or dead, who would it be: I would have dinner with Frank Sinatra. I love his music and the messages his music gives off is so peaceful and inspiring. I think we would have some very interesting conversations. 


How many years have you been a member of PCMA: I have been a PCMA student member for 2 years. PCMA provides an amazing opportunity to connect and network with professionals in the convention industry.
