senior exhibit manager
Really good at: Creating sponsorship opportunities— being able to find the event/product/service that aligns a brand’s story with our conference message is always an exhilarating moment.
Known for: A quick wit, talking even faster, but being most comfortable writing! I also always have recommendations at the ready for a variety of cities (and airports). if you are friends with me and are ever bored, hungry, or thirsty, I have failed you.
Loves: This fourth generation Chicago resident’s favorite song lyrics: “Hey, Chicago, what do you say? The Cubs are gonna win today!”
Guilty as charged: Following all the dogs on Instagram since I don’t have a pup (yet!) of my own.
