Marketing & Event Coordination

Welcome to my world of Event Coordination, Marketing and Business Management

About Me

With a passion that ignited during my early years at Cutitta Chiropractic, where I dedicated over seven years of excellence beginning in 2012, I was able to showcase my expertise in marketing and sales. Within my first year, I effectively doubled their weekly new patient visits, and year after year, I consistently contributed to increasing their practice collections by an average of 15%. During my tenure, I also took charge of managing their social media presence, leading to an impressive 340% increase in engagement over five years. Additionally, I skillfully coordinated our participation in an average of 30 events annually, including health fairs, trade shows, and conferences, fostering valuable community connections and partnerships.

In 2017, I ventured into an exciting endeavor as the administrator of Team Firestorm, connecting over 300 members through social media and a vibrant discord server. This experience deepened my love for event planning and coordination, skills that have become an integral part of my daily career.

In pursuit of personal and professional growth, I returned to school in 2019 and completed my Bachelor of Science in Sports, Arts, and Entertainment Management at Point Park University in just two years. This achievement showcases my unwavering determination to acquire new skills and knowledge.

As 2021 unfolded, I embraced new opportunities by joining NFM+Dymun, a reputable marketing and experiential event company based in Pittsburgh with a nationwide clientele. In this role, I was fortunate enough to spearhead fourteen events over a seven month window, negotiating with local vendors to ensure seamless experiences across different event locations within tight client budgets.

The year 2022 marked another significant milestone in my career as I became part of the esteemed team at Hack_EDU, later rebranded as Security Journey. As an integral member, I orchestrated over 20 conferences and tradeshows nationwide, including flagship events such as RSA, Infosec World, and Black Hat. My contributions to this role resulted in the creation of touchpoints for over 50% of active deals in 2022 and generated a remarkable number of over 2000 highly qualified leads.

With an unwavering commitment to excellence and an unquenchable thirst for innovation, I am dedicated to delivering exceptional results in every endeavor I undertake. My journey has been shaped by a deep passion for business, marketing, and event coordination, and I am thrilled to continue making a positive impact in these domains.

I look forward to connecting with like-minded individuals and organizations to create memorable experiences and achieve remarkable success together. Let's explore new frontiers and celebrate the joy of collaboration.

My Work Philosophy

I firmly believe that every member of a team is the most influential part of the collective, whether a CEO or a data entry clerk. I have always operated with the concept of "taking ownership," approaching my work as if I were the owner of the company, and dedicating myself wholeheartedly to bring my best to the table. I hold myself to the standard of delivering the best possible results, even if it means investing additional effort to ensure quality.

I am a firm believer in the significance of community, and know that what I do in my life has far-reaching effects on the communities around me. As an employee, I am committed to collaborating seamlessly with my team, clients, and managers, fostering mutual support and ensuring we bring out the best in one another.

Furthermore, I strongly believe that my education is an ongoing journey. Having spent two decades in the workforce, I embarked on a personal growth path by returning to school and obtaining my bachelor's degree. I continuously seek to enhance my skills through online seminars and certifications. Learning is not just about obtaining a diploma for me; it is an everyday pursuit. If faced with an unfamiliar task, rest assured, I will proactively research and acquire the necessary tools to deliver exceptional work by day's end.

In conclusion, my work philosophy revolves around valuing my role, delivering quality outcomes, fostering a supportive community, and embracing continuous learning and growth. With an unwavering commitment to these principles, I am driven to create a meaningful impact in my work and the communities I serve.
