What I do: “I plan a wide variety of corporate events ranging from small weekend sales incentives of 20 to large four-day conferences of 2,000. I worked with three others to plan the 393 events we did last year.”

How she got here: While at Clemson University, Michael landed an internship at Synnex Corporation, where she assisted with planning corporate events. As soon as she had her diploma in hand, she wanted to return. She’s been on the events team for five years now, working her way up.

Currently working on: “One event I am excited about is a four-day program for 90 attendees at Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino. The group will dive into great speakers and content during the day, and in the evenings I’ve planned sleigh-ride dinners and dogsledding adventures.”
