The East of Ellie team is a growin’! We are well underway planning multiple events throughout 2017 and are thrilled to have another event planner to assist in coordinating all the many moving parts. Get the inside scoop on our latest team member, Karen Marin.
Karen is a recent graduate from the University of Connecticut, 2016. Karen’s outgoing and personable character contributes to her passion and drive for Event Marketing. Her background allows for her to understand the importance of our innovative, industry leading events, as we help brands creatively amaze their audiences.
Karen keeps balanced by finding time for her evening cycle classes as well as volunteering as a member of Connecticut’s Quest For Peace.
If Karen looks familiar, this isn’t the first time you’ve seen her on the blog. She joined the East of Ellie team as an Events Intern in the summer of 2015. During her internship she quickly established her love for the events world, as well as EOE. She is delighted to be back full-time as our Assistant Event Coordinator, and we are equally excited to have her!
