Chris started her career in live events as an old school grassroots marketing representative with a fistful of concert flyers and a staple gun. Finding her calling, she stayed in marketing and sponsorship roles with Live Nation Entertainment for almost 15 years working at venues in Connecticut, New York, New Mexico, and Arizona.
Chris also worked as the exclusive Entertainment and Sports Advertising Account Executive for The Arizona Republic/azcentral.com/KPNX 12 News for 8 years. There she was able to work with tremendous arts & cultural organizations like Ballet Arizona, Musical Instrument Museum, and Desert Botanical Garden. She also managed advertising and promotional efforts with all major Phoenix sports teams, concerts and marquee events like NBA Allstar, Barrett Jackson Auto Auction, NFL Experience, Cirque du Soleil and Cavalia.
Chris decided to move back to her home state of Ohio after her only son graduated from high school and went off to college. It was there that she was able to reconnect with some of the best live event professionals she knew- the team at Emery Entertainment! As social media manager, Chris is tasked with growing social media engagement for the touring events.
