Director of Events,
ASBO International


I joined the ASBO International team in 2018 as the Exhibits Manager. I now serve as the Director of Events, working behind the scenes to ensure all ASBO events run smoothly for attendees. My favorite part of any event, is hearing an attendee talk about the new 'thing' they learned or connection they made that will help them in their job when they return home. 

I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree. In 2011, I earned my CMP (Certified Meeting Professional) accreditation from the Events Industry Council and continue to earn recertification with continuing education. 

Outside of work, I enjoy competing in triathlons of varying distances (including two full Ironman races, most recently in 2019), learning about wine, and hiking the many trails in northern Virginia with my husband and dog.
