Hi everyone! My name is Hannah Shoults and I am so excited to be lauralece’s intern for the fall semester! I hope that my desire to learn and passion for people will help expand lauralece event planning into what it deserves to be!
I am a senior at Auburn University studying Marketing. Graduating in December means having to figure out where I want to go, what I want to do, and who I want to be. Scary, right? I haven’t quite decided what I want my future to look like, but I am hopeful that the Lord with guide me in a fruitful direction.
Event planning could be a wonderful path for me because of my passion for helping others. Throughout my college career I was a part of Auburn for Water where I served alongside other members, raising money for people in Nepal who didn’t have access to clean water. I love being a part of something that is so much bigger than myself! It is so encouraging to see a group of random people come together to achieve a common goal. You find this same concept in event planning. Different vendors from different backgrounds and locations team up to provide a client with the perfect day.
I have always thought about marketing as something steady. I could join a marketing team and work anywhere and for anyone. Well, in the past few months I have really started to venture out into the idea of being an event planner. My family owns a wedding venue in Destin and my sister works as the day-of coordinator. Watching her build relationships with clients and vendors and seeing all of the planning come together to create a wonderful experience is what inspired me!
My interest in event planning is what caused me to follow along with lauralece and watch as it grew! I was so impressed with the professionalism and creativity each event displayed, so I messaged Connor asking if we could get coffee. I wanted to pick her brain and ask questions about how lauralece came to exist. She ended up offering me an internship position at the end of the meeting!
Not only am I thankful to learn from Connor but I am also excited to see where this opportunity takes me! lauralece827 event planning is a company built on heart and compassion, and we would love to hear from you about how we could help plan your next event!
