I was thrilled to be able to combine my loves of Design and Food into one exciting career. Not only did I plan the events, I designed and installed them as well. In April of 2016 I was hired at our local full-service Marriott, Visalia Marriott At The Convention Center, where I was the Catering Sales Manager and handled multiple accounts. Working with clients to help them realize their event dreams is what makes this such a rewarding career.
In 2011 is when I received my Certified Professional in Catering and Events, CPCE, through the industry organization NACE; National Association for Catering and Events.
My most recent honor was I was asked to apply for an internship opportunity with Mr. David Tutera to work with him at his Bridal Show in Houston Texas. I did in fact accept the volunteer position and received a letter of reference from Mr. Tutera.
I love the event industry and I can’t imagine anything more rewarding than making people happy. That is what I view my role as. I am thrilled to be a part of Senior living community. Now I have the opportunity to apply my skills in event planning to bring fun and fulfillment to a very important segment of society. There is nothing more rewarding than pleasing the residents and assisting them with enjoying the life that they have chosen with us.
