Good day.

I would like to share a few notes explaining why I chose so many categories of interest.

My professional expertise is composed of two fields:

1. apparel and product development
2. business development and event planning.

I have a great deal of experience in both. Much of my career has been the apparel industry in product development, sales, and, design.

However, in addition to my full time fashion industry jobs, I always did event planning, fundraising and consulting on the side or as a volunteer.

This has led to me fostering a great deal of growth in marketing, branding, public relations, and community outreach.

I am applying for an event planner role which would use a number of my talents.
Savvy in all types of events from the wholesale fashion trade shows, to business meetings, to grand successful galas, I find great joy in executing seamless events.

All of my product development and production skills regarding timelines, price negotiations, cost comparisons, and deadlines have been perfect tools to use in my non apparel roles.

As for OluKai, I have always loved the brand! The beach and Hawaii are both in my heart and I do my best to spend most of my free time at the ocean.

Warm regards, Michelle
