Around the office, you’re known for:
Always being up to brainstorm, collaborate on a new idea, or bounce ideas off one another. My dream office has floor to ceiling whiteboards with every color of the rainbow Expo pen available for use.
Event experience you’ll never forget:
The first black tie corporate event I attended as a guest. It was the holiday party for my husband’s company. The theme was ‘A Grinch Who Stole Christmas’ and it was at Chihuly Garden and Glass. As someone who has a background in museums, I love immersive experiences. Upon entering the event, guests were transported into a Dr. Seuss book with decorations straight from Whoville and actors walking around. This event sparked a fire inside me, made me obsessed with the company that planned the event (and spawned what I call “an industry crush”), and to this day reminds me to chase those goosebumps when planning events.
The one Seattle secret I’m willing to share…
Discovery Park! PNW is known for its hiking, variety of trails, and breathtaking views, (and don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing I love more than a full day hike to a glacial, alpine lake) but when you don’t have the time to drive 3 hours to the Olympics or Cascades, I go to the hidden gem of Discovery Park. Nestled in the neighborhood of Magnolia, Discovery Park is a 534-acre-oasis in the middle of Seattle. The bluff views alone can calm you down if you had a busy day. I love hiking the South Beach Trail – which brings you down to the lighthouse – and watching the sailboats at sunset. Just remember to bring a headlamp for the steep hike back, or you’ll be hiking back to your car in the dark!
Amy has a background in museums, specifically designing exhibits. Her love of storytelling, project management, and environmental psychology eventually led her to the world of event planning. In her current role, Amy thrives ironing out logistics and loves executing the final vision on event day. When not planning events, you can find Amy outdoors adventuring the PNW with her husband and rescue dog, or equally, cuddled up next to the fireplace with a good book.
