I am a passionate event professional with over a decade of hospitality and live event experience. As a former manager at a high-profile music venue, restaurant, and event space in Brooklyn, New York, I oversaw operations of events of all shapes and sizes during my 8-year tenure there.
I love meeting clients and sharing with them what the beautiful Prospect Park Picnic House has to offer. As a passionate supporter and lover of Prospect Park, the role of Event Sales coordinator brings together two of my biggest joys - Prospect Park, where I spend so much of my time - and helping clients shape the vision of some of their biggest celebrations.
I can't wait to hear more about you and your goals and dreams for your wedding day!
