MM: How did you prepare for your current job?
KKR: I attended IUPUI (Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis) and graduated from the TCEM (Tourism Conventions Event Management) program. In this urban setting I was able to learn from industry professionals with real life experiences, not just textbooks. I also volunteered for major events and served on meeting planning organization committees. After graduating, I held three separate positions each for a year before joining the Raybourn Group.
