A native of Trinidad and citizen of the United States, I have experience in business event planning from corporate and small business to non-profit and network marketing.
My experience in event planning began while working with REIGN Marketing & Consulting LLC, a network marketing company from 1993 - 2001. Over the span of eight years I spearheaded multi-day conferences in Jamaica and Barbados for the top sales persons, incentive events including cruises, and educational events for the company. This included decision making on marketing of the event, promotional material, site selection and assistance in incentive program structure.
I was the Executive Assistant to the secretary of the Palm Beach Hotel & Lodging Association from 2002 to 2003 and assisted in their Annual Golf Tournaments. I successfully created fundraising events and organized Thanksgiving food drives for WellSpring International a non-profit organization from 2002 - 2004.
In 2004 I worked in the United Kingdom to broaden my knowledge of the travel and event industry. As a Guest Service Representative at the London BioScience Innovation Center, I organized the weekly internal social events for the clients and staff, and bi-monthly scientific seminars. I also had the opportunity to work with five star hotels, and unique locations such as a floating hotel, on a steam train and museums throughout London.
In 2006 I founded Vassels Events & Marketing, a corporate marketing, event and travel planning company. Vassels has created unique events for small businesses including project management companies, salons and non-profit organizations. We have created travel excursions for sales groups including tours to France, and England for a networking marketing team.
I volunteer my planning skills to Church of The Risen Messiah andd a member of the Black Chamber of Palm Beach County, Florida.
