Service Description

I have tremendous experience in project management, prioritizing, and multi-tasking. My present position as an account manager at Events by Andre Wells has provided me with valuable first hand experience in the fast-paced event planning industry. I am responsible for planning and managing high-end corporate and social events. As a result, I've been able to fine tune a skill set that includes first class customer service, an engaging personality, and the ability to multitask with ease which is invaluable in any industry.

My time at Universal Music Group (UMG) has allowed for my experience to take a unique position in the marketplace in that my skill set is strong in event production with an entertainment emphasis. These experiences have given me an extensive portfolio of concerts and events that are truly unique as much as they are fun! The ability to work well with many different personality types is an invaluable characteristic I inherited as a result of my time at UMG and would undoubtedly be useful in any industry.

Graduating from George Washington University's Event & Meeting Management masters program has further solidified my oral and written communication skills. I am a born planner and I thrive under pressure. I don't shy away from deadlines or a "to do" list that is a mile long. Instead I vow to meet the challenge. It's the skills that these combined responsibilities have given me that set me apart from the rest!
