The greatest accomplishment I had during my internship experience was the Riva Experience Event. I was amazing to see our largest event of the season executed. I loved how it combined customer appreciation aspects along with a fun night out on the town! It was amazing to help plan and manage the event and see all our customers have a great experience!

Learning experience

The greatest lesson I learned from this experience is that it's all in the details. The little things are what differentiates us from the pack. The more little things we do right the more people keep coming back!

What advice would you give?

My advice would be to continue to ask questions. Throughout my experience asking for clarification and help has only helped me to grow. People will always be in your corning to help your succeed!
