Being able to prepare for situations with a solid plan and pivot when things change!
I absolutely love camping, hiking, exploring, and traveling.
I love being able to have less impact on the environment and climate change through virtual events. I also think virtual events allow for more collaboration from people who are across the country and around the world.
I heard about Happily from a friend who I worked on a few events with and decided to join the team because the events that Happily produce truly make an impact.
I worked on 826 Valencia's Fundraiser and it was by for the most memorable one. It was my first event with Happily and I thought it was amazing to see people who were all great at their craft come together to help support a non-profit who is amazing at what they do.
I transitioned to virtual events due to the pandemic and the need to continue to work and bring meaningful connections to people. While virtual and in-person events are very different, they also have a TON of similarities. I found the best way to transition was to dive in head first, do the research, trust my gut, and listen to experts around me. Just do it and make sure you have good internet.
Connecting people and giving back makes me happy! I always try to make sure I check in with the people I care about and help out those around me when I can.
