The Event Tribe is an exclusive community that connects Utah-based event executives, allowing them to spark each other’s creativity and share best practices through a unique combination of interactive, face-to-face events and a private, online platform.
If you are an event executive inside the corporate, association, or academic space and would like to request an invitation, please select the “Join Tribe” button.
I am the ultimate middle child (number six of eleven) and the proud aunt of 40+ nieces and nephews. I recently found my own Prince Charming and welcomed a darling son into our family with open arms.
I enjoy stories of all kinds including theater (director, actress, opinionated audience member), books (reading and writing), movies and BBC television. I have travelled the world and have visited 4 of the 5 continents (although I think New Zealand should count). My mother was ahead of her time when it came to wellness, and had all her children being muscle tested and doing meditation when no one I knew had any idea what that was. So I grew up with a deep love for all the mindful activities associated with this tribe--meditation, yoga, energy work, naturopath medicine, essential oils and so forth.I have a BA in English from BYU, a MA in education from Northern Arizona University, and I taught writing for five years before being approached by Jared Stewart to help him translate his company's relationship building culture into a business fable. I joined the company in 2004 to co-author The City of Influence, and spent the next decade designing culture training for print, film and live events books, as well as helping perfect the art of transforming an event into a pool by facilitating connection. The best part of my job is the variety, the freedom to innovate and the extraordinary people I've been able to add to my life who have enriched my life in ways I never could've imagined.
