What she does: I am a solutionist.

In the world of events, I have to plan for what is expected but be prepared to accommodate everything unexpected that happens. Every venue, speaker, sponsor, caterer, menu and attendee is different – at the end of the day I am only as successful as my last event so knowing how to manage countless expectations is crucial. I find the old adage true, the best ‘A’ Plan is to have a good Plan ‘B’ in your back pocket…


Future Aspirations:
 We are in a world that is bursting with ever evolving technologies and endless options to avoid human contact. I believe we are losing sight of the importance of person-to-person interactions. It is only when we connect that true relationships are formed and bonds created. I would like to see these bonds grow into future business relationships that strengthen the economic vitality of the Hartford Region.

One fun fact: I swam with sharks twice in my life that I’m aware of. The first time was an accident. I’ve also climbed Mt Washington three times. None of which were by accident.
