How long have you been in the events industry?
I started out in the catering and event management industry in 2002, and got hooked! Fifteen years later, I have finally transitioned into rentals and events, after longing to be a part of Premiere’s extraordinary team.

What are three interesting facts about yourself?

  1. I am an obsessive compulsive cleaner and organizer and believe in a minimalist lifestyle.
  2. I am a proud cat mom of two, and no, I am not a crazy cat lady. My house is so clean, you won’t even know I have cats!
  3. I love to work on my own yard, and have every sort of lawn or “As Seen on TV” gadget you can imagine for such tasks. But, still minimal!

What is your favorite thing about the events industry?
Being a part our Premiere’s Team and ILEA’s Membership Board, I have had the pleasure of attending networking events, meeting new faces,  familiar faces, and always leaving with learning something new about myself, as well as my industry and focus. I take great pride in my teammates, and the positive atmosphere that we work and thrive in.
