Meet Katelynn, our Summer Intern

The Barn at Bay Horse Inn has added an intern to our summer staff.  We look forward to getting to know Katelynn and feel confident our guests will adore her as much as we do! 

Katelynn is currently a senior at IUPUI in the Tourism, Conventions, and Event Management program.  She is also completing her business certificate through the Kelley School of Business. When asked what her goal after graduation is, Katelynn replied, "to be working in the event and wedding planning industry for a local business that has a passion for making an impact in the community, and it is evident in each event that they have."  

When asked what she liked best about her Barn at Bay Horse Inn internship, Katelynn responded, "So far my favorite part of the internship, with Barn at Bay Horse Inn, has been working closely with the bride, groom, and their families on the day of the wedding and making everything come together better than they ever imagined. My second favorite part would be working with all of the staff at the barn. Their #1 goal is to do everything they can to be sure that each and every event goes off without a hitch and it truly shows with the success that they've had."  You can see why we chose this passionate young lady to join our summer team.

We asked Katelynn what she hoped to gain from this experience.  Her reply, "I hope to gain hands on experience with events and everything that goes into implementing them from beginning to end.   As well as effective ways to communicate with everyone putting on each event including barn staff, brides/grooms and their families, event hosts, and vendors. My internship with Barn at Bay Horse Inn has been everything I could imagine and more."

We are thrilled to have Katelynn here for the summer and know she will go far in her career!  Her willingness to help wherever needed, passion for planning events and constant smile are a welcome addition to the team.
