What are your best memories of UIS?

When I started the Master’s program, there was a small group of us who went through the program together. It felt like a personalized program.

How did UIS change or prepare you?

It was during my Master’s Program that I received a dream offer to join Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings Internship program. I’ve now been with the department for 13 years.

What is an interesting fact about yourself that you would like to share?

My husband and I first met while I was wearing a wedding dress and he a tuxedo for a marketing shoot at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion. We later got engaged and married in that exact location.
