Christy Ricketts

Favorite part of working at GES?

I really enjoy working with our incredibly talented and diverse colleagues and clients but my passion is assisting and educating exhibitors.  

Where can you find me when I'm not working?
When I am not working I am usually on the tennis court, at Orange Theory Fitness, or traveling. 

What brings me to my happy place? 

  • Exploring new cities and restaurants with my family. We are one state (Hawaii) away from visiting all 50. 
  • Coffee - A great vanilla latte
  • Playing doubles tennis 
  • Listening to a new audiobook, I loved The Dictionary of Lost Words. 
  • A great workout at OTF

What would be my superpower?
To have the ability to heal people from any illness or injury. 

If I was not working in the Exhibitions and Events Industry, what would I be doing?  
I am passionate about live events so I would stay in the industry but would love to work the Olympics, U.S. Open, or Wimbledon. 

What was my first job? 
I worked retail at Christmas and I refuse to listen to Mariah Carey's Christmas album ever again. 

Recently, I have enjoyed watching... 
Ted Lasso, The Home Edit, The Playbook, and The Morning Show.
