The quickly approaching Spring wedding season calls for a fabulous (and I do mean FABULOUS) new intern! Her name is Ashley, and she is a student at the College of Charleston. I took some time to sit down with her this week to find out a little more about her background and where she’s looking to go!
Savannah Johnson: What made you interested in joining the event planning industry?
Ashley Konkle: I took my first Hospitality & Tourism class last semester and really enjoyed learning about the industry, so I wanted to get some real, hands-on experience.
SJ: What are you most looking forward to in your internship?
AK: I am looking forward to the actual event days and seeing how each event is different.
SJ: What is something you want our readers to know about you?
AK: I want to stay living in Charleston, even after I graduate from the College.
SJ: So since you’re still in college, do you have big Spring Break plans?
AK: Yes, actually. I am going to Madrid and Barcelona
SJ: What is your favorite restaurant in Charleston?
AK: Hall’s Chophouse, for sure!
SJ: What item can you not live without?
AK: My planner. Organization is key in my life.
SJ: If you had to pick anywhere other than Charleston to live, where would it be?
AK: Miami. I love the warm weather!
SJ: Speaking of warm weather (and hopefully we’ll have some here soon!), what is your favorite summertime activity?
AK: I really love to play soccer on the beach.
SJ: What is the epitome of a southern wedding to you?
AK: Well, I always think of outdoor weddings with large, picturesque Oak trees and sailcloth tents.
