Introducing one of our summer 2018 apprentices… meet Taylor Dary! She will be working in the office and helping out with our summer events. We are so happy to have Taylor join our YNI team! Learn more about Taylor…

Taylor is a senior at Iowa State University working towards her Bachelors of Science in Event Management with a minor in Hospitality. Taylor’s interest in planning events began in high school when she joined student council and was the head of the committees to plan Homecoming and Prom. Her passion continued to grow in college as she became more active with her sorority, Sigma Kappa, and also involved with Dance Marathon for the Children’s Miracle Network. Taylor spent this past spring semester studying abroad in Florence, Italy. While there, she took an event planning class where she had the opportunity to plan an entire event from beginning to end. The event was a cocktail and appetizer gathering along the Arno River for students of the university. She spent many weekends traveling throughout Europe making lifelong memories. Her favorite places were Paris, Dublin and Mykonos! Some more fun facts about Taylor include:
