iPhone sales outpace births, and more people own mobile phones than own tooth brushes. Welcome to 2013 peeps.

"We were looking for the exhausted faces of a planning team with rolls of duct tape to hold it all together"
A hilariously honest blog post from OneLobby on the surprise of finding not all event planners are in constant panic mode. Yes, sometimes things do run smoothly! Especially those planned collaboratively  using OneLobby ;)

Huge thanks to everyone who came  to the Knowledge Summit yesterday! It was out biggest turnout for a conference ever, and we could not be happier with how things went. Admittedly I am biased as the event planner, but I think it was an amazing day :)

Story
Tagline
I love to travel, sing along, paint my nails, and eat peanut butter from the jar.
Introduction
After running around Europe for a few months, spending a summer in the big land, serving tables until I wanted to crawl under one, grading papers, tutoring, and studying somewhere in between, I emerged from University with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in hand. Rather than heading straight into the working world, I got sidetracked and ended up in Guatemala for a few weeks where I helped build a school. 
I then found my first grown up job and have been trying to grow up ever since. 

... just kidding about that last part. 
Bragging rights
Been a member of Girl Guides Canada for 20 years without ever learning to sew or cook, tutored groups of 100+ students even though I'm not tall enough to reach the whole blackboard, served tables for half my life and only spilled coffee on a customer once.
