I have been working in the tradeshow and experiential marketing industry for over 5 years and absolutely love what I do! I am experienced as a Crowd Gatherer, Product Specialist, Lead Gatherer, Demonstrator, Booth Hostess, Saleswoman, Field Manager, Brand Ambassador, Promotional Model, Print/Runway Model, Actor and Costume Character. I am also bilingual in Mandarin Chinese.

The most common thing I get complimented at every event I work is how I am always smiling! I just tell people it's easy to smile when you love what you do! I love that this is a field of work where I am always learning something new, meeting new people and visiting new places.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Child and Adolescent Psychology worked with children diagnosed with autism and other psychological disorders. I also worked as a bartender, barista and caterer for 3 1/2 years. I am great with pets and am the proud pet owner of 2 Rhodesian Ridgeback mixes. My hobbies and interests include playing music, singing, video games, all things technology, cooking, traveling and dancing.

Due to my versatile background and skill set, I feel comfortable working any promotional or tradeshow event. I am hard-working, positive, punctual, and I learn very quickly. I feel I am great asset to any event and would love to have the opportunity to work with you!
