I started with the Graduate Seattle in October 2021! Born and raised in Tacoma, WA, I am so excited to be a part of this historic Seattle hotel and this unapologetically unique hotel group. Prior to joining the Graduate, I was in San Diego coordinating weddings at a winery where we did a minimum of 50 weddings each year. The I went to the most premier catering company in San Diego where I serviced weddings, corporate events and large-scale sporting events. I've done it all and I'm excited to bring your vision to life at the Graduate Seattle.
