Meet our Spring 2019 Intern

Just as soon as East of Ellie says bon voyage to our globe-trotting Winter Intern, we’ve got a new intern to hang with this spring. Meet Lauren Goodrich, our latest (and greatest) Junior Event Planner.

Lauren’s very first experience in the event world was helping her mom plan themed birthday parties every year.  Fast forward and now Lauren is a senior at the University of New Hampshire, where she’s majoring in Recreation Management & Policy: Program & Event Management with a concentration in Hospitality Marketing.

Her first look into the professional events world came from a practicum at a parks and recreation department near her university where she collaborated in marketing local events, helped with setup and breakdown, and designed some creative aspects – giving her just the right experience to really embrace her internship with EOE.

Ellie isn’t her first trip down event planner lane. This past summer, she interned with Greenwich Tent Company, where she designed content to post on company’s social media platforms and website as well as organized and secured town permits for events.

Fun Facts:

Studied abroad in Edinburgh Scotland, where she met Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (sound familiar?)

Has a sweet spot for baking sweet treats. Did someone say cupcakes?

Prefers fall & winter over summer — sweater weather & bean boots all the way

Is a pro at thrift shop treasure hunting.
