Sarah-Daye began her experience in events by shadowing David Beahm, of David Beahm Designs in New York City, during the summer of 2008. At this time, event planning was something she had never considered, but watching the ballroom of the NYC Plaza Hotel turn into a Jewish wedding extraordinaire, planted the seed. It was then that Sarah-Daye decided to start actively gaining experience in event planning. She applied for and received an internship with the events department at Christopher Newport University, where she was excited to assist in the planning of CNU’s 50th Anniversary Gala, and her very own commencement. After graduation, Sarah-Daye was hired by Colonial Williamsburg to be a Conference Coordinator where she received her event planning certification from Academy of Special Event Professionals. After three years, she moved on to the College of William and Mary’s Conference Services department where she spend a year. Although Sarah-Daye loved planning special events for the college, she still thought something was missing in her career. Luckily a friend told her of a position with Bacon Street Youth and Family Services and she knew she had to work for the Agency. Not only did she get to plan events, but the events she would be planning would have a purpose that would benefit her community. She is very excited to apply her skills and expertise of event planning to the non profit world and help Bacon Street continue to grow and support her community.
