Founded Herban Feast in 1999.

As founder and CEO of Herban Feast, I am at the helm of a successful hospitality company with a heart that beats daily for our team and our clients. Every day we are given the opportunity to create events that will foster memories for people for years to come. We bring our clients’ celebrations to life as if they were our own.

A graduate of WSU’s School of Hospitality Management, I opened Herban Feast as a catering company in 1999. I love the opportunity to combine my passion for cooking, event planning, and herb gardening. In the end, connecting people and creating deeply meaningful relationships is my approach to success. We know everyone seeks a feeling within that feeds their mind, spirit, and soul from a place of connection, contribution, and inclusion. Together with our clients, our team, and our partners we seek to be inspired and inspiring!

What do you like to do with your free time?

I like to get my hands in the dirt. Free time for me is exploring my property on Vashon and figuring out what to plant, grow, and enjoy each spring and summer.
