MeetingPlay's #EventProfs: Meet Nicole H.
Once upon a time a true gem was found in a printing store. Through multiple engagements and conversations, MeetingPlay was able to eventually hire that gem on to be our first account manager.
Fast forward many years, similar to what Sarah M. and Robert M. do, Nicole H. helps provide an amazing and customized process when it comes to developing and overseeing the success of mobile event apps here at MeetingPlay.
Like we do every Friday here on the MeetingPlay blog, we get personal and showcase an employee. Thus if you’re talking with one of our amazing account managers, our CEO, our CTO, or just received an app for your event that you are in love with – you can know the faces behind it that helped make it so successful. Let's meet Nicole H.:
1. What was your first job – tell us about it.
Starting at age 12 I would clean out stalls and do the nightly feedings at a horse barn in exchange for riding time. The first horse I leased was a grey pony named Cashew.
2. Who has influenced you most in your professional path/career?
My mom - besides being my ever constant support system, her ability to multi-task and always get the job done is inspiring.
3. What’s your favorite part about working in the event technology (or events) industry?
Getting to work with companies from all sorts of industries – keeps things interesting.
4. What career advice would you tell your 18-year-old self, looking back?
Don’t stress out about not being where you think you should be in your career. Keep working your butt off and doing things you like and you will get to where you’re meant to be.
5. What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not working?
Riding / being around horses and anything outdoors - hiking, kayaking, camping. I also enjoy a good nap, sleeping is a very underrated activity.
Obviously Nicole brings amazing experience, dedication and talent from both her personal and professional life that help MeetingPlay's clients, and we're surely glad to have her on the team!
