I am thrilled to join the HB Hospitality team as the Spring 2015 intern. Although, I originally hail from Atlanta, Georgia, I have called Chapel Hill my home for the last three years. I am a senior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill majoring in Journalism and Mass Communications with a specialization in Public Relations and a minor in Anthropology. I discovered my love for event planning and marketing through my experience assisting Kidzu Children’s Museum during their reopening campaign. I helped to plan events for donors and museum patrons as they moved to their new location at University Mall. I also have helped plan several events for my sorority that benefit our philanthropy.
My experience as a Disney College Program participant from May 2011-May 2012 gave me my first taste of what hospitality and marketing was like. I loved helping guests create unique experiences on their vacation and being a part of the magic everyday. I hope to one day go back to working for the Walt Disney Company as an Event Planner for the Wedding Pavilion at Walt Disney World Resort.
This is such an exciting opportunity for me and I cannot wait to share my journey with you!
