I started out my career in 1992, as a catering coordinator and catering sales representative for an outside catering company, and had the privilege of studying under the hand of the owner, Lisa Dupar. During this time I learned the ins and outs of producing an off-site event; from menu planning to ordering rentals and buffet design, creating room diagrams, and executing and planning events from 10 to 1000 people. One of my greatest events I had the privilege of being a part of was the Wedding Reception for Bill and Melinda Gates. It was a sit-down dinner for 500 people. This event required an enormous amount of logistics, planning, hiring and training over 100 waitstaff and kitchen staff people to make this event a huge success. I moved over to the country club world of onsite catering as director of catering at Echo Falls Country Club. I helped implement the catering department by creating menu and room packages, hiring and training staff, meeting with customers to plan their events such as Wedding and Golf tournaments. In the year 2000, I was recruited to work in Logistics at the 2002 Winter Olympics, in Salt Lake City, Utah. This was another amazing and wonderful opportunity of working on a huge event of huge magnitude. After the Olympics we moved back to Seattle and bought Grand, in 2005 and we have expanded it with what it is today!

I have done some high profile events throughout my career. However, my passion is planning and executing events no matter how big or small. To me success is an event that is flawless to the customer and guests and they have a wonderful time no matter what happens behind the scenes!

“Life is Grand” “Live it that way!”

With over seven years of experience, I began working for Grand Event Rentals in 2007 in the linen department as a linen specialist. Now as the office manager, my favorite part of the job is designing our booth displays for wedding shows and creating unique, trendsetting table designs for our showroom, showcases and open houses. Recently, I had the privilege of hosting a wedding special on New Day Northwest on King 5, that showcased the trends for 2014! My dog, Savannah comes to work with me each day and has now become our office mascot! When I'm not working at Grand Event Rentals, I enjoy shopping, taking my dog for walks, boating during the few months of Summer and of course, watching the Seahawks play! As a former cheerleader, I can't help but love football!
