My name is Blaknie Carlile and I am Senior from Birmingham, Alabama. When I decided to study Hospitality at Auburn University, I felt it was time to get some actual work experience, so I started working at The Hotel at Auburn University as a front desk agent. I always had a special interest for event planning, but being promoted to the Guest Relations Coordinator at The Hotel at Auburn University made me realize that focusing on the guests’ expectations is highly important in this industry. I am really excited to be a part of the 2020 Hospitality Gala, and gain more knowledge and experience that will help me in the future. My plan after graduation is to find an open position as an Event Manager and work my way up to one day owning my own company.
