During the spring of 2015, I had an events internship with Iowa State University Museums where I assisted in the planning and implementation of Brunnier in Bloom. Brunnier in Bloom is an annual event that University Museums hosts as a fundraiser for educational resources. For this event, I gathered raffle donations, silent auction donations, floral design participants and managed the social media pages. In the end, we broke records in both profits and attendance. This was the 7th year of Brunnier in Bloom and the connections formed with florists and donors have become very strong and necessary to the success of the event. I used my local network of musicians to find a talented and fitting act for the evening. This event introduced me to my passion for working in the museum setting.

With the addition of a silent auction, I helped increase profits by 47%; extensive marketing and word of mouth increased attendance by 32%
