- Work experience summary
My professional life started with a summer job at a movie theater. From there, I interned a small PR firm and later, a promotional marketing agency. I then took a full time position in event marketing for a staffing and consulting firm in the healthcare technology and IT field. I assisted with corporate events like holiday parties, summer picnics, and food truck days while managing our trade show exhibition schedule at industry-related shows. I also coordinated event-related social media campaigns and managed our promotional item inventory.

Working at a movie theater! It was the best first job ever. No day ever looked or felt the same as I jumped around from usher to concessions to ticket drop and box office. It was eye-opening to learn all that goes into a smooth day at a busy theater. Plus, I was able to watch movies for free and I created lifelong friendships with many of my coworkers. It’s no wonder I kept returning for a total of three summers.
