How many years have you served on this Committee?
I've been on the Committee for 3 years. I was originally on the Sponsorship committee being led by the esteemed Jen Imbaro.  Then I was the Finance Coordinator (CFO!!) for a year which helped me understand the intricacies of the show.  When we get the Fashion Show up and running again, I will have the pleasure of Co-Chairing with Krista Easterly.

Why did you choose this Committee?
This is the best IIDA event of the year! I wanted to experience what it was like to put on such a large operation.  The committee consists of some of the most creative and dedicated people that I have had the opportunity to work with.

How did you get into the A&D industry?
I started in the contract furniture industry in 2014 and have been playing the role as trusted partner ever since!

What is your favorite IIDA NE event?
The amount of time, effort and sacrifice that goes in to running the Fashion Show makes it without question, my favorite event of the year.  The dedication of the committee, the creativity of the firms and schools, and the sponsors and industry as a whole make this the event you don’t want to miss.  My second favorite is Croquet though!  Fun and competitive, while taking us to a beautiful part of New England as well.  Not a bad gig.
