Board of Directors 2021/2022

ILEA Member for: 5 years

Favorite ILEA Experience: The 2016 Membership Drive at the Metropolitan at the 9. It was such a well-planned out event with amazing sponsorship and extremely well attended. Everyone had a great time and I had the opportunity to meet and connect with so many event professionals in Northeast Ohio. It's what inspired me to join.

Favorite ILEA Experience: It’s a toss-up between receiving the President’s Award from Gail Palmer, CSEP (Palmer Event Solutions), in June 2021 and when I booked my first photography gig as a direct result of networking within ILEA Cleveland.

Favorite ILEA Experience: Since joining in the height of the pandemic, while I haven’t had many opportunities to attend in-person events – I have to say that I have loved being able to still connect virtually and get to know fellow members on a more intimate level. For an introvert, like myself, this has really helped me feel more comfortable taking on a bigger role and being a part of the board right out the gate!
