My internship experience as an event planner at Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort has influenced me both personally and professionally. I learned how to successfully plan and implement all types of special events, and how to comply with the client’s needs and wants. My internship made me realize that event planning is the field that I should be in and clarified that I made the right decision for my future. I will take all that I learned with me as I move forward in my career.” Cara Ciaramella

The Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, FL, is a private resort where I did my internship. I planned and implemented events for children and adult groups who came for conferences and vacations. It is absolutely beautiful; it's like being in paradise. Megan McHale
