New Intern – Emily Virgil

With the summer season and the high volume of weddings and events that are to come, we are pleased to welcome our new event intern, Emily Virgil! We can’t wait to see what she can bring to the table and see her grow throughout her time here with us. To get to know Emily a little better, we asked her to answer a few questions about herself:

{1} What school are you attending? Niagara University

{2} What have you done before interning for Pauleenanne Design? Other than being a student at Niagara University, I have previously done a summer internship with the Rochester Yacht Club, as well as work as a cashier for Wegmans.

{3} What do you hope to gain from this internship? By participating in this internship, I hope to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to become successful in this industry. I look forward to learning all of the aspects that are required to properly plan and execute an event. In the end, I hope that this internship reassures my hopes to become an event planner in the future.

{4} What would be your dream event to plan? I would love to plan an elegant destination wedding. I enjoy experiencing new places and meeting new people. Any event that I have the opportunity of planning that puts a smile on my client’s faces is one that will interest me the most.

{5} Are you inspired by anyone in the events industry? I do not have a specific inspiration. I love the movie Father of the Bride and watching the wedding planner, Martin Short, plan the wedding specifically sparked my interest. In addition, I love watching events be put on and I am intrigued by every little detail that makes up an event.

{6} What is your favorite quote? I love finding different quotes. However, two that have always stood out to me are “The greatest gift you can give someone is your time.” As well as “You are more important than you realize.”

{7} If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? I would love to learn to plan an event by myself from the very beginning until the very end.

{8} Where can we find you when you’re not working? When I am not working, I am most often walking my dogs or reading a good book. I also enjoy spending my time with my family and friends participating in fun activities and doing different things.

{9} Tell us an interesting fact about yourself. I am left handed. I have a strong passion for photography. I love traveling and being near the ocean.

Welcome to the Pauleenanne Design family Emily!
