- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When working with a new customer, the first thing I do is identify their needs and expectations. Once identified, we formulate a plan and service agreement that works with their budget, time, location, etc. Every event is unique and I like to work with people as closely as possible so that we really focus on creating the type of experience they are looking for, all things considered.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I started in the service industry waiting tables at 15 years old and have worked in the Food and Beverage business ever since. I started in restaurants and bars and then moved on to catering, working for the Wild Thyme Company (fantastic San Diego based caterer!) as an operations manager. I moved to Oceanside in 2011 and started my own business, BarFly Beverage Solutions, providing event beverage and bar services across San Diego County. Education: Bachelor of Science in Business/Marketing, Associate of Arts in Hospitality Management & Certificate of Proficiency in Meeting & Event Planning,
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Be sure to hire a real professional! There are lots of bartenders out there, but consider the amount of interaction your bartender is going to have with your guests and the impact that has on the overall vibe of your event. This is not an area where you want to leave it to chance. Know who you are getting.
