Well hello there! My name is Katie Bourus and I am a student at the University of Oregon. I am planning on pursuing a degree in Public Relations to someday become a wedding planner. It has always been a dream of mine. Some experience I have in this field is being a caterer at University Catering, where I have served many events. At these occasions, I admire looking around at the atmosphere and seeing happy faces. Being surrounded by tons of people and interacting with them is what I find very entertaining.
The purpose of this blog is to connect with others interested in the event planning field. I want to socialize and communicate with others to learn more about this career. This summer, I am going to Ireland to intern at a company called Magnum Events. My responsibility is to plan for the Tall Ships Races Festival happening over summer. My heart is pumping full of excitement! I cannot wait to travel in Europe! I have been there once when I was younger and remember bits and pieces of the amazing city. However, this time I will be taking full advantage of every chance I get. I want to explore every corner, wonder down twisting roads, and picnic in lush green fields.
So follow me along this journey of connecting with other event planners and traveling around Europe!
