INTRODUCING THE CLUNIE LADIES…
Meet Linnea Herren!
Junior. Communications Major. House Paparazzi. Friend.
Linnea is interning at ABCey Events, an independent events planning company. She works on marketing through social media platforms, and aids in all aspects of event planning such as site selection, budget development, timeline production, and much more. She even works events planned by her supervisor, and talks directly to clients and vendors. Each event is unique and she works to satisfy the specific needs of each one. Linnea loves that her job is focused on planning and organizing and has been thankful for the amount of independence she is given. She works with guidance, but her supervisor trusts her with many responsibilities allowing her to get the full hands-on experience.
Linnea’s favorite spot in the city is the Buena Vista park near to the Clunie House. It is a close, quick, and fun hike with absolutely breathtaking views. She says, “I need perspective every once in a while, it puts me in my place.”
Something Linnea has learned thus far this semester is to be slow with making judgments on others. “This semester has taught me that I can’t be quick to judge. I have seen people on the bus and made immediate assumptions about them, but then I saw them do something nice for someone else.” She has been able to catch herself in that and learned that each person has more to them. Also, she has realized that she needs to enjoy every moment and live presently. “I forget about the small things and even having an hour to myself or sitting at a park by myself has caused me to see the importance of small moments”
Linnea is so excited to learn more about the event planning world and more about what the city has to offer!
