Michelle Lazarz, CERP

Administration and Employee Relations Specialist

What do you do at Premiere?

I am the Administration and Employee Relations Specialist, but I do a little bit of everything! I manage most of the design and content updates for both Premiere and Party Time’s websites (our sister store), handle Accounts Receivables, organize the onboarding process for our new hires, and assist with special projects.

When did you start working in the events industry?

I started as a Banquet Server at a venue that did catering in 2011. Since then I’ve worked for a hotel, a wedding planning company, and Premiere, so I gained a wide scope of the entire events industry and brought all of the logistics together here through rentals!

What was your favorite Premiere event to date?

My favorite was our Virtual 20th Anniversary party!

What three things could you not live without?

My family (including my husband, in-laws, and our kitty Mischa), cheese, and my laptop

What is your favorite local Austin restaurant or food truck, and what do you order there?

Texas Honey Ham Company – absolute hands down favorite breakfast tacos in Austin! I don’t like eggs so I order the potato, bacon, and cheese tacos with their queso!

Your #1 recommendation for planning a wedding or event?

Ask for help if you need it! Planning can be a LOT of work if you let it, or if you struggle with decision overload. Lean on your people for help and hire a great team of vendors so that you don’t HAVE to do everything yourself.
