Additional Information
Education/Experience
I have nearly 20 years of experience producing trade shows, conventions, and events for a variety of trade associations and professional societies, including a TSNN Top 250 Trade Show. Working primarily for non-profit associations throughout my career allowed me to expand my skillset and manage not only event operations, but exhibit and sponsorship sales, marketing, event technology implementation, and conference development as well. A lifelong learner, I've earned both the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) and Digital Event Strategist (DES) credentials.
Social/Volunteer Organizations
Over the past 6 years, I've held numerous leadership positions with the PCMA New England Chapter -- Director, Treasurer, President-Elect, President, and currently Past President -- and am also currently a member of the Meetings Mean Business (MMB) Meeting Planner Advisory Council. I recently began a term on the Board of Directors for the Association for Women in Events, and am serving on both their Awards and Nominations committees.
More Information
After nearly 20 years as an association meeting planner, I launched Aspire Meetings & Events, LLC in June of 2016. Aspire Meetings & Events, LLC is a full-service meeting management and event consulting firm that provides a wide range of services from strategic planning, site selection/sourcing of venues and service providers, conference and exhibit management, meeting and event planning assistance, complete event management, production of digital/hybrid events, housing and registration management, event operations, and event technology analysis and implementation. I specialize in association and corporate events, such as meetings, conventions, trade shows, and conferences, for groups of 10 to 10,000+.

I am also a National Account Manager for Experient, a Maritz Global Events Company. With Experient's buying power and proprietary destination research tools at my disposal, I work with my clients to identify the best venues and destinations for their next event, negotiate contracts that provide them with the greatest value and least amount of financial risk to their organization, and provide additional consultation and guidance throughout their entire planning process. I also assist in sourcing other event services that they may need (A/V, General Service Contractors, DMCs, Mobile apps, Registration, etc.).
