My name is Kennedy and I am currently interning with Leona Morelock Designs. So just a little bit about me... I am from a small town called Richmond, Kentucky. Most people don't know where that is until I tell them it's right next to Lexington! (small town probs) I moved to Bowling Green almost four years ago to start my college career at WKU.
I am now a senior at Western Kentucky University and pursuing a Hospitality Management major with a minor in event planning. I am currently getting school credit for this internship, which is a win win for both myself and Leona! I am able to learn how the wedding planning industry works and what all goes into planning a successful wedding while getting credit for the class, and Leona is able to mentor me and teach me everything she knows and to better my knowledge of what she does.
I contacted Leona through her website. I knew I needed an internship for school, and I am very interested in the whole wedding aspect of event planning. I literally typed into the Google search bar, "wedding planners in Bowling Green, KY" and Leona was the first to pop up. I then went onto her website and loved the way her website appeared. It was easy to navigate, so then I contacted her. Soon after I had my interview with Leona and earned the internship position, I jumped right into the current wedding she was already planning. Just a few weeks into the internship and I was already helping plan my first wedding, how awesome is that?!
I am so incredibly thankful for this opportunity to work with Leona. She is unbelievably knowledgable of the industry and extremely talented in what she does. I've already learned so much from her and can't wait to continue my journey in the wedding planning industry! :)
