Owner & Senior Coordinator
I began my career in the Hospitality industry at the age of fifteen. Working with my parents casino night company dealing blackjack and setting up casino tables. As my friends started to get jobs working for minimum wage I quickly realized that having a boss was never going to be for me.
After graduating high school I took on a more administrative role at my parents company and was quickly the general manager running the entire operation.
Over time I began to want to explore other areas of the event industry. Bartending and Food service was of particular interest. I loved hosting events and cooking. I took on my first bartending gig with very little experience and realized I needed to educate myself to provide a better service for my customers. I began studying cocktails and hosting dinner parties to increase my skills.
Soon catering companies were contacting me to work at there events and provide small teams. The small teams grew into a full on staffing company of 800 Employees that included Chefs, Bartenders, Waiters, Banquet Captains, and other various hospitality staff.
In early 2019 I realized that I had lost myself to administration work and was no longer in the field doing what I loved the most. Providing unique dining experiences for guests, being onsite and coordinating the logistics of those caterings.
After a little soul searching I made the painful decision to close my first company which was a fifteen year labor of love and start over.
The new company, JM Event Planning & Production pulled key staff members from our previous company and the goal is boutique service. A hands on approach with each and every customer. Some might say it is a step backward to take myself from the position of CEO to a million dollar a year company to back in the field setting tables, carrying racks of dishes, and sweeping the floors at the end of the night. I disagree.
I am so excited to be back at weddings working with my team to make the magic happen. At the end of every event I feel fulfilled knowing that I was a part of someone's special day and able to make it everything they dreamed of.
