- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Absolutely. You always have to continue to be inspired. I am a member of NACE: National Association of Catering and Events, comprised of over 5,000 members.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I would say one of the first questions that you get while mentoring the young minds is how and why did you get into event planning and designing? For me, the question is a a perplexing one as I really cant remember that exact ah-ha moment. Perhaps subconsciously I knew this industry was for me when I was young and prepared dinners for my parents. While the menu only consisted of hot dogs, peanut butter sandwiches, and hamburgers with cookies for dessert, the table was set, the napkin was folded with a menu card placed on top, the candles were lit, and the lights were dimmed. I remembering making my little brother be the maitre d as I anxiously waited for them to come home from work. Or, perhaps it could have been years later in college when a corporate manager wanted to steal me from college to become a regional training manager for a new steak house opening across Texas. Fortunately, I stayed with the education track as I knew my destiny would be far greater. Maybe it was my competitive nature and desire to always be the best in whatever I did. From debate to dance, I lead the team to practice, to do better, and to win. Whatever the inspiration, I believe you are inherently born with the trait to be a leader, an entrepreneur, and have a passion for serving people. Truth be told, not all people have those traits. There have to be leaders and there have to be workers. It makes the world work. Whatever the inspiration was, at some point all of them inspired me to be an event designer and planner. Along the way, it was always important for me for me to give the very best to my staff, employees, clients, and mentees.
