Meeting & Event Management and Marketing

Age: 38
Hometown: Oshkosh

Current Residence: Oshkosh
Attended FVTC: 2011 through current

Why did you choose the Meeting & Event Management and Marketing Programs?
I chose the Event Management program to have a career that I love rather than just having a job to go to. I currently represent a few non-profits where my main interests are raising funds and coordinating events to further the group’s cause. This degree will enhance my knowledge of hosting events and running profitable fundraisers. The Marketing program will expand upon what the event program has taught me, and give me even more knowledge and skills.

What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?
One of the benefits of coordinating a successful event is the joy that attendees leave with. Whether it is a benefit event or just a gathering of likeminded people, when they leave happy and the event went as planned, it leaves you with a great feeling of accomplishment.

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?
Originally I chose Fox Valley Technical College because of its affordability, proximity to home, and small class sizes. The hidden value was the willingness of the staff and fellow students to help new students become comfortable with their new surroundings.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?
After graduation I hope to find a career that I enjoy. Non-profits, concert venues, sports arenas, or anywhere people gather to enjoy an outing together are places I would love to work.
