Kelli Bielema, Events Manager, Facebook
Kelli Bielema has over 20 years industry experience on the west coast. Her event production career begins at Universal Studios Hollywood including creating atmosphere entertainment for the theme park, film premiere activations on Universal CityWalk and managing rosters upwards of 200 employees. From there, Kelli continued to be well-versed in staffing administration while overseeing an on-call pool of talent at Kaiser Permanente -- a diversion from events, but nonetheless, incredible training ground for handling personnel & their development.
While next supervising operational meeting logistics at Deloitte and a crew of coordinators & receptionists, Shindig Events was born out of her drive for produce events that draw from her creative background. From non-profit galas to music festival experiences, the company was lauded for unique productions that are far from the norm. In the 7 years of running her own business, Kelli has been honored with multiple Emerald City Applause Awards and ILEA Esprit Award nominations for producing some of the best corporate events in Seattle & beyond. And now, as her career pivots, she is part of a growing team of event managers at Facebook Reality Labs, producing recruiting and academic experiences in the ever-evolving and exciting world of AR/VR. And in a true effort of herding cats, she and her spouse, Patrick, live in Seattle with 4 cats, 1 dog and a revolving cast of foster pets.
