Long Beach, New York
I am someone who loves to help others dreams come true, and who truly enjoys seeing others faces light up with pure joy and excitement. I also just happen to be a junior Hospitality and Tourism Management Major at the Isenberg School of Management at UMass Amherst. I have always been a super outgoing person, so when a family member suggested that I looked into majoring in Hospitality, and that it would be perfect for me I took the advice. That lead me to Isenberg's Hospitality Department that is constantly one of the top rated programs in the country. It wasnt until after I arrived at UMass that I realized that I wanted to go into the event management feild of the hospitality industry. This field would allow me to do what I love in a way that I never really imagined. Assisting someone in putting together a gala, fundraiser, a little kid's birthday party or any other kind of event would get me excited to go to work everyday. To make this dream into a reality I have joined the Meeting and Event Managers Association at UMass, and have become a student member of Meeting Professionals International in order to learn more about the amazing industry that I will be entering into. I have also interned at Glen Oaks Club, a private platinum rated country club on Long Island, and was able to learn more about events and event management from the club management point of view. I am very excited to learn more about the industry that is event management and can not wait to see what it has in store for me!
