As Senior Manager of Community Engagement at Zappi, Ariel leads the creative and strategic processes behind event programming (live and virtual) and stewards the Zappi Insiders community. She also plays a key role in other projects which bring valuable content to the insights world, such as the Inside Insights podcast.
Ariel built her career in event and community management working at non-profits and social networking organizations. She joined the Zappi marketing team in April of 2019 with a passion for bringing people together to build meaningful relationships through unique, memorable experiences.
After a decade living in Boston, Ariel recently relocated back to her hometown of Rochester, NY where, when not working, she can usually be found tasting Finger Lakes wines, working out, or exploring new places (which for now mostly means hiking Western New York, but hopefully will include travelling the world again soon!)
Hi, I'm Julie, VP Sales & Revenue, a Speech and Debate judge, a mom of college age kids. I mentor both formally and informally, although I call it dual-mentoring because it always goes both ways. Our industry is expanding and there's loads of opportunity for you to present, network and find your path. My goal is to share the joys of the journey. I'm known for helping to keep the strategic goals in focus (reframing context, minimizing distraction), for asking questions and for witnessing the greatness in others and often amplifying it, as appropriate :)
