Why you love working in the events industry.

I love what I do because it’s never a dull moment regardless of what project you’re tasked with. No matter how much planning takes place, there’s always an unexpected surprise onsite. The rush always keeps me going! Being onsite is my favorite because I’m able to oversee all the moving pieces and ensure it’s a smooth event. I always enjoy a good challenge.
