“Sarah has effectively, and successfully, launched our entire social media program,” stated Kurt Krause, general manager at NCC. “Her regular blog has developed a large following and is very unique within the conference center industry. She has single-handedly established an online following that we had never dreamed possible.”
Vining developed her social media and online expertise first as a marketing intern with 3D Travel in Honolulu where she managed more than 5,000 locations for 3D Hawaii, the world’s first virtual travel planning Web site. At NCC, she was able to further explore and hone her skills.
“Sarah is a huge asset to our marketing team,” Krause added. “Her hard work has greatly enhanced our market presence for training, meeting and banquet business in Northern Virginia.”
Vining currently resides in Bethesda, MD. She is the recipient of the “Distinguished Service” award from the College of Charleston Department of Communications and was selected as a “Featured Student” by the College of Charleston. She is also a Certified Tourism Ambassador.
