Sunday Spotlight: Lakeside Leadership Academy – Conference & Event Planning

Lakeside Chautauqua welcomed 14 Lakeside Leadership Academy (LLA) interns in early May. Since then, they have been hard at work experiencing Lakeside, taking on challenges and advancing new projects within their work environments.

We would like to introduce the Lakeside community to this summer’s Conference & Event Planning Interns and the Events/Project Management Intern.

Why did you want to intern at Lakeside Chautauqua?

I wanted to intern at Lakeside Chautauqua mostly because of the beautiful community. Community is difficult to find when moving away for one summer, but Lakeside is already an established community and it is right next to beautiful Lake Erie.

What’s your greatest accomplishment at work, so far?

My greatest accomplishment at work so far has been completing The United Methodist Church Conferences. It was difficult to deal with so many events at once, but it was a good experience.

What are you looking forward to doing most this summer at Lakeside?

I am most looking forward to soaking up the sun and enjoying the recreational activities offered here at Lakeside, such as swimming, volleyball, painting and shuffleboard.

Where do you see yourself in 10-15 years?

In 10-15 years, I see myself with a successful career in finance or business management, and with a healthy family of five.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

I swim for Cedarville University’s Swim Club.
