Downtown Sales Coordinator

Location: Columbia

I was born in Long Beach, CA but was raised in Charlotte, NC, El Segundo, CA, and Denver, CO. I moved to Columbia, SC to attend the University of South Carolina and studied Hospitality Management. After graduating, I worked in the Rooms Division at resorts in Charleston, SC and Stowe, VT. I relocated back to Columbia during quarantine to be close to my parents, my sister, my niece and my nephew!

I love working at Southern Way because of the people. Everyone comes from a different background and still work so well together. It’s fascinating seeing everyone’s points of view when planning an event. We’re constantly bouncing ideas off each other which helps us continue to learn in the industry. My favorite memory so far was working the Garnet Society at the Cockaboose Club the night before out home opener. As a U of SC Alumni, it’s so exciting seeing the positive changes around and within the stadium! It’s also nice being around other people that share the same love for the University!

Southern Way has taught me that no two people think alike. Everyone will always have their own opinion, their own vision, and their own idea about how an event should look and function. It reminds me to always stay true to myself and appreciate the uniqueness of each event we host!

When I’m not working, I really love to read and watch horror movies. I love doing anything outdoors, whether it be at the beach, in the mountains, or just grilling out in a backyard. I spend a lot of time with friends and family around town and we usually gather at a local brewery. I enjoy doing studio style work outs like Pure Barre and Basecamp. I love running but have to avoid it most of the year here due to the heat!
