Brandy is a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) with more than ten years of experience managing events—including educational meetings, conferences, and trainings for both private and public organizations.
She previously served as events coordinator for Stamats Communications managing company-wide conference and event activities, and as events program coordinator for Arizona State University’s Center for Applied Behavioral Health Policy, where she oversaw logistics and marketing for all center events and training activities. She holds a B.S. in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of Iowa.
A rabid Kansas City Royals fan (and the Chiefs too) Brandy spends quite a bit of time enjoying craft beer and red wine (especially from Oregon), traveling, and hanging out with her cat, Charlie.

Representing your company at a big client pitch meeting can be a nerve-wracking experience. The only things at stake are your pride, your reputation, the ramifications of losing the big account, your company’s quarterly financial outlook, the impact on your teammates, and your future job security. No big deal, right?
