What you should know:

As Events Director for G3 Communications, I was responsible for event programming and content marketing for the B2B Marketing Exchange. I advanced this show from a 250-attendee, 20-sponsor, one-track program in 2013 to a 1200-attendee, 50-plus sponsor and 6-track show in 2018. This required creating and executing an extensive content strategy program for all marketing campaigns and delivering excellent communications to all staff, speakers, sponsors and attendees.

AWC focus:

I learned about AWC as an active member of the student chapter of AWC at Illinois State University. Recently, I was encouraged by my current supervisor to join Detroit AWC as part of my 2020 work goals.  I look forward to networking and volunteer opportunities.
