Corporate Sales Manager
How long have you been in the wedding industry?
I started as a private event planner for the Capitol Grille after graduating from the University of RI. I went on to work for the RI Convention Center for 6 years planning corporate events/tradeshows for groups as large as 1,500 people. I began planning weddings for Belle Mer and opened up their newest property, the Newport Beach House after leaving RICC. I have worked as the Corporate Events Manager for the Newport Experience for almost 4 years now and couldn't ask for a better job!
What is your favorite thing about working at The Newport Experience?
Our iconic locations are amongst some of the most beautiful places along the East Coast. They are all so different and unique in their own way. It certainly makes it easy to come to work each day when you are surrounded by water views and a great team of people.
Why do you love planning events?
My favorite part has got to be seeing the final product. Some events can involve pre-planning that can start a year prior to the actual event date. To watch it being executed after all the hard work you and your client put into it has got to be my favorite part.
What is a fun fact about you?
I once planned an event for President Obama. Watching all of the security measures with the Secret Service that are put into place prior to him arriving was one of the coolest things I have ever seen! Some other fun events I planned with celebrities include: John Legend, The Eagles, Kid Rock and DJ Pauly D.
