I’m so thrilled to be the spring 2013 intern with HB Hospitality! Like Chad, I am also a UNC-Chapel Hill student, and I will graduate in 2014 with a B.A. in Journalism. Though discovering my passion for planning events evolved as I took classes in public relations and advertising, I soon realized that combining both career paths was what I was looking for: I want to work with people to create and share spectacular events that are meant to be remembered. Finding this opportunity with Danielle was truly a blessing.
As a lifetime small-town North Carolinian, I think my planning skills came from living “in the sticks,” where my parents taught me the value of time and money. I’m so eager to take what I’ve learned at home and school and put it to the ultimate test: the real world!
I’m both nervous and excited to fill Chad’s shoes as the second HB intern, but I couldn’t imagine a better place to spend the next few months. I look forward to sharing my journey with you!
