I grew up south of Kalamazoo in a small farming community where I played sports, was active in school and enjoyed hanging out with friends. I began my career early, as many other teenagers did, working “in the corn” both detasseling and roguing. In addition to work, my summers were filled with volleyball, soccer and basketball camps and getting tan in our pool!
I still enjoy being active through exercise, traveling, and fun in the sun, however the most common past time for me in the summer is working. I have many years of experience in hospitality, employed in both restaurants and retail establishments. My customer service, management and organizational skills were further defined during my twelve-year banking career. After finding myself involved with yet another bank downsize, I decided to set my sights beyond banking and enhanced my Business Management degree with employment in both property management and as a legal assistant.
Through all of my endeavors, I have committed to working seasonally with Epicure Catering since 2007. I am the Office Manager and I assist Cammie with staffing, human resource needs, and bookkeeping. In addition to my role as Office Manager, I also help out wherever and whenever I can, doing tasks such as: setting up for events, serving, washing dishes, and cleaning up after the event.
Working hard is second nature for me, and I learned those traits from my mom, sister and brother. Family plays an important role in my life and the people at this company are an extension of my family. At Epicure, we all are honored to serve you, and every one of us takes pride in our ability to work as a team to create the best event possible.
