Kerrie Cave

Project Manager, EventTech


Born and raised in Southern Maryland and graduated from the University of Maryland in 1998. Began my career as a meeting planner in Washington, DC., had the opportunity to work with some amazing meeting planners at Hanley Wood and Courtesy Associates. After having my son, I relocated to Raleigh and worked for NC State University. While I was a conference manager with the university, we used the CadmiumCD product. I currently reside in Wilmington, North Carolina and work remote for Cadmium as a Project Manager. I look forward to working with clients and helping produce successful programs.

In my free time I love to read, paddleboard, sit on the beach, hike, visit breweries, and go for a ride or camp in our 1973 Classic VW Bus called Bodhi!
