dream job #1

These dream jobs are in no particular order (well the order I want to write about them in..)
*most of the jobs I dream of don't have "titles" ... so bare with me

Events Logistics Coordinator

This has been my passion for the last few years. I first fell in love with event logistics the summer after my senior year of high school. I was interning for CMD in the PR department. One of our assignments for the summer was to run everything media related at the Jeld-Wen Tradition Champions Tour. I got to work with all of the media which was a blast, but I really got to see first hand what it looks like behind the scenes of an event. I absolutely loved it. I love the fast paced, go-get-em, think quick on your feet, problem solve, help people out, get this from here to there, make sure this happens etc. Since then I had a passion for these logistics. I love being organized, detail oriented and hospitable.

I was able to get a certificate in "Festival & Event Management" through the UO where I got to take a few classes on event management, meeting management, festival management as well as take workshop classes on going green in events, getting volunteers, budgeting and food service. Since graduating I was able to work for Susan G. Komen for the Cure and help with a few fundraising events for them. Currently I am the Volunteer Programs Manager for a non-profit in year 2 of an athletic, weekend, fundraiser event called Wild Canyon Games (I'm a volunteer myself).

My dream would be to do this for a living. I loooooooove event logistics.


  1. I work in events for a health non-profit right now. Sometimes they send job postings. If I hear of anything I would love to recommend you! I'll let you know if anything comes my way :)

  2. This is my dream job too. Why can't it be so easy as saying and deciding what you want to do and getting that job?
