I’m Kristen, the summer co-op student at In the Moment. I’m taking the Bachelor of Hospitality and Tourism Management program at Algonquin College and I’m looking forward to working in event planning after I graduate. I didn’t always know I wanted to be an event planner, but I always enjoyed planning activities for my sisters and my friends.
I’ve been having a blast working here at ITM. I’ve been working here a month now and I’ve been learning so much. I’ve helped design and decorate for a dance, talk with vendors for our upcoming weddings, and arrange linen and décor rentals.
Creating a design plan for the lobby at the dance was fun, even though we had less than a week to plan for it. It did mean that I was tying little tags to bags of candy in the car as we drove to the school, but it was worth it.
The Dandelion Festival was amazing! All the planning paid off. The Dandelion Dinner was beautiful with the navy blue tablecloths, green apple table runners, and flickering candlelight.
I’m looking forward to seeing the weddings that I am helping to plan right now. It makes all the planning and stress worth it when you see the final event.
