I am a Certified Meeting Professional, focusing in event management, with over 10 years of experience working for a market leader in the healthcare information technology industry, managing all aspects of trade shows and events. While there, I gained a lifetime of exposure and experience in working in all facets of the events business. After the birth of my second child I decided to leave the corporate world to spend more time with my family. Through that transition I learned that I had a lot to offer companies that needed the services that they could not house internally so that lead me to create Pineapple Group.
Over the past 14 years I have managed a variety of internal and client facing events for companies like Toys R Us and Change Healthcare. Through the opportunities I have gained vast experience with managing all facets of trade shows and corporate events. Pineapple Group can provide end to end support from site research and selection, contract negotiations and execution for hotels, venues, meeting space and other partners to building timelines, graphics and design, social media and event application development, site selection, logistics, agendas, production, décor, attendee communications, registration/event site development, audio visual needs, transportation, event budgeting, onsite coordination and travel for your attendees.
I am an active member of Meeting Professionals International and currently serve as president of the Tennessee chapter. I'm having the time of my life with my husband and friend, Mark, and two amazing kiddos, Jack and Emily.
