The Golf Connection, LLC
The Golf Connection plans and manages international golf tournaments. From 2013 to 2014, I joined their team as an onsite Hospitality Coordinator. In November of 2013 and 2014, I worked in Montego Bay, Jamaica for the Annie's Revenge Jamaica Golf Pro-Am. While in Jamaica, I managed all of the nighttime activities, including player registration, a beach party and the awards gala. In addition, I also coordinated all of the daytime activities for the non-golfing guests. In February 2014, I once again served as the Hospitality Coordinator for the Golf Connection on the islands of St. Kitts and Nevis. At the Admiral's Cup in St. Kitts, I was responsible for the nighttime events, as well as the daytime guest consultations. During my time with The Golf Connection, I applied my event management skills in a foreign country. I loved the opportunity to meet new people and solve new problems in innovative ways.
Christmas in July 5k
After losing my dad to cancer of unknown primary as a teenager, I became dedicated to the fight against cancer. Following my freshman year of college, I decided to pair my love of running with the my quest to help eradicate cancer. I created the Christmas in July 5k, a road race in my hometown (West Newbury, Massachusetts) with all proceeds benefiting the Boston-based cancer research and treatment facility that treated my dad. For the race, I solicited sponsors, secured publicity, and managed the entire event. In our first year, 2012, we raised over $4000 with the help of 120 runners, 13 corporate sponsors and dozens of volunteers. The next year, the race grew to over 170 runners from eight different states, 14 sponsors and over $6500 raised. Though the non-profit race, I found the power of community while managing a price-conscious budget driven by a good cause.
