Meeting Planner, Presbyterian Church in America
What I do: As the meeting planner for the PCA, I plan our large annual convention hosting more than 3,000 people, which includes attendees, exhibitors and families, as well as smaller committee and board meetings through the year.
How I got here: I started as the meeting planner assistant for the PCA under the guidance of Sherry Eschenberg. What a blessing it was to work with Sherry! She is so knowledgeable, a great teacher and a wonderful mentor. Sherry eventually decided to move on from meeting planning. At that point, I interviewed and moved into the position.
Greatest career accomplishment: Organizing the PCA annual convention for more than 3,000 people takes a lot of moving parts, and it is so rewarding to watch our denomination convene and spend a week together.
What I’m working on: We are so excited this year to do some rebranding. Our publications will have a new look for our event. We are also adding new creative sponsorships to our exhibitor options—every little bit counts!
What I do outside of work: My husband and I just moved, so we love exploring our new city, trying new restaurants and playing golf.
