Conference & Hospitality Services is pleased to welcome Phoebe Frisch-Gebhart to our team. She will join our unit as a Conference Manager, coordinating directly with new and existing clients bringing summer conferences to UCSB and staying in our residential communities. Phoebe has worked in event planning for almost 15 years and has experience coordinating a variety of programs including private catered events, business retreats, government funded projects and large charity functions. Most recently, she was a Conference and Event Coordinator at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Originally from Austria, she has traveled extensively only to find a new home in Santa Barbara. In her time off she enjoys exploring the Santa Barbara hiking trails, testing the waters at Rincon with her long board, and indulging in the great classical music that tours through the area. She is looking forward to meeting her new HDAE colleagues!
