Executive Assistant to Chief Production Officer

My first role supporting the CPO of events had me aggressively working hand in hand with our key executive who lead each unique event. I was exposed to areas that most of the team didn't have the special opportunity to see. I built a lot of relationships with NY city agencies that work with our events as well as had the chance to see all five boroughs of New York!


Drexel University

M.A., Sport Management

I gained a variety of knowledge and experience in the sports industry at Drexel. Learning from professors who currently work in a variety of industries (i.e. Aramark, Philadelphia Eagles, Prodigy Sports) gave me a great understanding of the dedication needed to thrive in this industry. My internship with the Philadelphia 76ers took me all around the Philly Metro area working with children at summer sports camps.


Seton Hall University

B.A., Communications

Seton Hall University was a great school for student growth and exploring opportunity in the New York City metro areas.
