We are excited to have Leah join the convention sales team and to introduce her to all of you!

Fun Fact: I once danced in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade as a snowflake and I even made it on TV!

What is your favorite memory as membership sales manager? It's definitely hard to choose but I think that my favorite memory is the Event Expo we hosted this past fall. It was a fantastic showing of all of the incredible people, services, attractions, restaurants and more that our community has to offer and it was beautifully curated in the new Columbus Museum of Art.

What excites you most about working in convention sales? Well, I've spent the past few years getting to know the best that Columbus has to offer through our members and now I cant wait to show it off on a much broader scope to planners and meeting attendees.

We know you are a big coffee drinker, what is your favorite place to grab a cup of joe? The Roosevelt Coffeehouse!

What song do you currently play on repeat? I'm a little embarrassed to say this but I currently love Justin Bieber's, "What do you mean?" It's really catchy and I like his new sound.
