Owner of The Curated Concierge. Until launching The Curated Concierge, I worked in corporate America for thirteen years. About 10 years of that was spent working in-person, and the last few years, I worked remotely. I was a Program Consultant at a financial company. I planned and implemented overall strategy for events and educational programs within the Asset Management department, then managed the preparation and logistics for the 60+ annual events as well. I was also responsible for obtaining the event sponsorship so with that, I gained invaluable experience in relationship management and networking. Then, to scratch that creative itch, I did quite a bit on the side as well - anything from planning weddings and vacations to writing blogs and newsletters to building out websites to creating gift guides and welcome baskets - mostly all for friends, and some for clients-turned-friends.
