Showtime Events and Cobblestone Hall are excited to welcome Courtney Thompson as their newest intern. She is 22 years old and a senior at North Carolina State University majoring in Communications, with a concentration in Media. Courtney grew up in Raleigh, NC but moved to Charlotte, NC right before she began high school. She has always been an NC State fan so she knew she would end back up in Raleigh eventually!
Courtney has been interested in event planning for years and has always considered pursuing a career in the field after graduation in December 2011. She recently interned in New York City this summer at La Pomme NYC which is a well known event space in the Chelsea area of the city. While there Courtney was able to work directly with the staff at the venue planning birthday parties, corporate events, fundraisers, and more. But while in the “big city” she realized that she did not want to live anywhere but North Carolina and returned home when her internship ended.
She hopes to continue to gain hands on experience while working with Showtime Events, especially in wedding planning and full event management. Over the next few months Courtney will be assisting with event production and have a chance to experience all aspects of the pitching, selling, planning, and execution process from start to finish.
Away from work Courtney loves food, hanging out with friends, shopping, fashion, traveling, and spending time with her dog Lucy. Some of Courtney’s favorite TV shows include Gossip Girl, The Bachelor, Pretty Little Liars, and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She is also an active alumnus of her sorority at NC State, Zeta Tau Alpha.
We are excited to have Courtney on the Showtime Events and Cobblestone Hall team for the next few months. Look for her at events!
