About me

I have always been a highly motivated individual. This attribute has greatly translated into my professional development journey. I am a student at University of Wisconsin- Stout with a major in Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management and minors in Spanish and Business Administration. In the future, I hope to contribute to building the most effective workforce possible within a company from an Event Planning standpoint.

To gain more experience in the Event Planning field, I obtained an internship the summer of 2018 at Cantigny Golf as the Food and Beverage Leadership Intern. This experience has given me professional exposure in the Hospitality industry. . Overall, I was responsible for the entirety of the event management and general support to the Director of Food and Beverage and to the general food and beverage staff. I supported the entirety of the banquet operations through administrative duties, operation management and assisting with sales. My skills were utilized to coordinate weddings, manage restaurant operations, support banquet and kitchen staff and fill any Food and Beverage role as needed.

I am very active within my college's community. I am part of our Honors College, an Involvement Specialist, a Resident Advisor, a two-time Chancellor’s award and Promising Student recipient, as well as being a part of six student organizations. These organizations include PCMA UW-Stout Collegiate Chapter, Stout Catholic, Gamma Sigma Sigma-National Service Sorority, Hall Leadership Committee, Career Conference Executive Board and Cru.
