Ewald Consulting is excited announce the addition of Laura Arens, to their events management team as an Event Coordinator. Laura recently graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor’s in Sports and Recreation Management with a Business Studies Concentration and joins the Ewald team with 2 years of event planning experience.
While earning her degree, Laura served in a variety of roles including as an Event Intern for Vola Gibson Elementary and a Resident Assistant for the University of Iowa. Recently, Laura served as the Symposium Coordinator for the UISRM Symposium where she was responsible for transforming a traditional single day event into a virtual four–day event. She was key in coordinating the volunteer committee and orchestrating speakers for virtual presentations, contributing to the success of the event.
“Laura brings experience transitioning recent in-person events to virtual and has a lot of passion for the industry,” said Vicki Thein, CMP, Director of Events. “We are excited to have her join our team!“
