Event Planning Intern

September 2023 San Diego, CA
“Getting to witness and facilitate the behind the scenes actions of some of Gaslamp District's biggest holiday events. I also got to exercise some creative freedom when it came to marketing promo content.”

Social Media Manager

January 2021 San Diego, CA
“I liked that I was given the freedom and opportunity to take ownership of projects like launching their modeling agencies Tik Tok and creating a larger social media presence in general. I loved having a voice at Gaslamp Event Management. The ideas and input I had on events and projects were heard and given great consideration. Working directly with the CEO provided me with direct communication with what was expected of me. It also provided me with constructive criticism that ultimately made me a better social media manager and digital marketing specialist that I can take with me to future positions. It also opened up my network to investors, entrepreneurs and business owners in the San Diego area that elevated me professionally. My career acumen has benefitted considerably from interning at Gaslamp Event Management and extremely thankful to have had the opportunity to be a part of GEM!”
