More about Leanne.
After receiving my associates degree in Hospitality with a concentration in Restaurant Management, I returned to SUNY Delhi to obtain my bachelors degree in Business with a concentration in hospitality. While finishing my education, I had the amazing opportunity to work at Butternut Valley Golf Course as their Event Coordinator. While there I was able to redesign their website, implement new marketing tools such as social media and radio ads. I was fortunate enough to help coordinate graduation parties, baby and wedding showers, class reunions and a wedding. Additionally I helped plan and implement the annual Member Guest Tournament as well as smaller tournaments for both profit and nonprofit organizations. Furthermore I helped with all the planning and implementation of the Upstate Tailgate Music Festival which headlined rising country star, Kolby Oakley.
Outside of Butternut Valley Golf I have worked on a handful of baby showers, anniversary parties and weddings. Additionally, while at SUNY Delhi I was able to experience both front and back of the house work while doing several banquet style dinners including the prestigious Kevin Zraley Scholarship Dinner as well as different community fundraisers.
Also while finishing my education I was able to substitute at my high school alum, Franklin Central School where I was fortunate enough to have worked through my high school summers as well. Additionally, I reinstated the Elementary Drama program during the 2014-2015 school year and came on as a co-advisor for the High School Drama in the 2015-2016 school year. This program allows me to work with students ranging from 10 to 18 years old, as we put on two drama productions per school year.
My main career goal is to gain valuable event experience working in Upstate New York and to build my own event business, Yellow Rose Events, that will be able to help coordinate and plan all events ranging from business dinners to birthday parties to extravagant weddings.
