Bowling Green State University
Who are the most important people in your life? Truly and full heartedly my mom and dad. They both have always been there for me since day one.
Who do you work for and what is your role? I am an undergraduate student starting my senior year at Bowling Green State University studying tourism, leisure, and event planning with a minor in marketing. Currently, I am working in the university’s Office of Admissions as a Student Tour Coordinator managing aspects of the Tour Guide Program.
What is the best thing about your job? My coworkers are some of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of getting to know. Everyone is always energetic, cheerful and full of life.
What are the 3 most important skills you use at work? Communication, decision making, and time management
What one piece of advice would you give to someone beginning their career in the Meeting Industry? The advice would be to myself as I am (hopefully) on my way to beginning my own career in the Meetings Industry. However, one of the biggest outtakes I had from attending this year’s MidAmerica Conference is the importance of incorporating a blend of personability to one’s “work self” in today’s ever growing and changing economy.
What super-power would you love to have to help you do your job better? I would have the power to clone an infinite amount of tour guides so that I could literally pull one out of a closet, at the ready, whenever needed.
