Where did you grow up? Johnstown, OH
Who are the most important people in your life? My family, friends and the Ohio State Buckeyes
Who do you work for and what is your role? I work for ARCOS LLC, a cloud-based software provider. My role is Marketing Coordinator, so I do both traditional marketing and event planning.
How did you get to where you are today in your career? After working in Market Development and Legal for 3 years at another company, I decided to look for something new and started as a temp at my current company. Within 3 weeks I was full time and was handed a super important annual event that nothing had been done for…that was to occur in 4 months. And the rest is history! I was fortunate that they took a chance on me and now we have built a solid, innovative marketing and events department in just 3 years.
What is the best thing about your job? The variety! I work on several different projects at once and I also get to travel. I am never bored.
What is your proudest moment? A client stopped by and said, “I love coming to your event every year. My family plans vacations around it because it’s that awesome.”
What are the 3 most important skills you use at work? Adaptability, Multi-Tasking and Positive Thinking
What would you like to be doing in 5 years? I would love to be an Event Marketing Director or Marketing Director at a tech company- my favorite industry!
What one piece of advice would you give to someone beginning their career in the Meeting Industry? Keep an open mind, be flexible and pay attention to what your clients love because ultimately their opinions are the most influential.
