With The Oncenter since...
2010

Favorite Event Worked...
There are too many amazing events to name, but the most memorable has to be the grand opening of the Lakeview Amphitheater in 2015 with Miranda Lambert. The stress levels were extreme, but our amazing team came together to successfully open the venue with mere days between the completion of construction and the opening of the gates to the general public. It was monumental and a true testament to our love of the industry and commitment to providing amazing experiences to the CNY community.

Playlist Favorites
Anything with Ludacris, but I love a wide range of music from the Everly Brothers to The Supremes to N*SYNC to J.Lo and almost everything in between. I'm always listening to music

Guilty Pleasure
Chocolate. It's honestly a problem.

Favorite Vacation Spot
Italy

Dogs or Cats?
Elephants, but they're too big for the house - so dogs.

What I love about being a part of The Oncenter team...
The ability to work with a wide array of event types and clients. No two events or work days are the same! I also get to work with an inspiring, incredible group of talented individuals!

Favorite Event Worked...
One time that comes to mind was one of the most challenging and satisfying; transforming the hockey arena into a gala space and serving 1200 guests a black-tie dinner. This came on the same day as a 3- day convention including breakfast, lunch and dinner to 1,000 was ending and moved directly into another convention; flipping both the Convention Center to the other event and Arena back into hockey overnight. Many moving parts and logistics regarding Food and Beverage, inventory, spaces, etc. but it all ended flawlessly.

Favorite Trend
Specialty menus. I love when we can get creative and make custom event menus enhanced with décor and labeling that really ties into the event so it is fun, personalized and engaging for the attendees.

What is the one thing you cannot live without?
Snacks! Anyone who knows me knows I love to eat and I will never turn down an opportunity for snacks.

What I love about being a part of The Oncenter team...
is the sense of community that is found here. In an industry that often times has us working nights, weekends, long hours, varying shifts, etc., it's important to feel that we can all come together to put on the events. With such a large scope of events that come to The Oncenter from a small rehearsal in the BeVard to the SADA Auto Show that takes over two buildings, the diversity of people and talent that we get to experience is unlike any other venue.
