What do you do at FUN?
I work in Operations as the Program Coordinator – I make sure all the supplies necessary for your event are packed for the artists and performers. When they arrive, they are ready to go. When I work some of the events, I am the coordinator (the face of FUN!) who meets with the event planner to make sure all elements of the event are set up and ready to go, I also troubleshoot any issues.
Something you would like to share about yourself
I am originally from CT and now reside with my husband, Jon, and our Frenchton (which is a Boston Terrier/French Bulldog), Minnie, in Easton, MA. I graduated from Manchester Community College in Manchester, CT and have a degree in Hotel Tourism Management. I have been working for FUN Enterprises for the past 10+ years in different capacities but loving what I am doing now.
I love to bake, my favorite being cupcakes. Being gluten intolerant, I have perfected many different gluten free cupcakes, Champagne Raspberry being my favorite. My most intriguing cupcake was a Banana Cupcake with Peanut Butter Frosting and Crumbled Bacon Sprinkles on top. It was really good!
Your favorite FUN program
My favorite FUN Program is Henna Tattoos. With my cake decorating skills, it allows me to be creative using some of the same techniques. Clients love the results!
