In her role as program manager, Laura Barnum is tasked with creating a unique event experience for her attendees and clients. Laura started as a program coordinator at Bishop-McCann and progressed into the program manager role, which has helped her have a very cohesive outlook on how events are executed. To this day, she enjoys digging into attendee data as much as she enjoys planning a creative reception menu. Her ability to roll with change, along with her calm demeanor, helps keep things on track in times of chaos. Laura finds her job very fulfilling as each project brings new challenges and opportunities to innovate and learn.
When she isn’t working, you will most likely find Laura spending time with her husband and their crazy Siberian Huskey. Laura also enjoys spending weekends exploring the never-ending list of Chicago’s must-try restaurants and listening to live music any chance she gets.
