I fell into the world of hospitality when my grandpa bought a small catering company in Tacoma and convinced me to run the family business. I had no prior experience and wasn’t even sure I was interested in catering. I am so thankful for the valuable lessons and experiences the eight years gave me. During that time, I also earned my bachelor’s degree in hospitality management. As graduation loomed, my grandpa asked if I wanted to buy the company to which I declined. Instead, I sought out an industry leader and applied at Herban Feast. I have been happily working for BJ and part of the Herban Feast family since 2011. I love The Foundry and am so excited to show it off day in and day out to couples and corporate clients. I enjoy painting the picture of what their event will look like in our unique space. It is wonderful to see a client fall in love with the venue and enjoy it as much as I do.
With Herban Feast since 2011.
