Herban Feast had been a favorite client of mine for almost 20 years, so when exploring a possible career change, I knew I wanted to stay in the industry AND work for one of the best companies around!  I love that Herban Feast has given me the opportunity to take my experience in the wedding and corporate world and extend it to the clients themselves.  My favorite part of my job is connecting with people and helping them create the event they’ve been dreaming about.  I am amazed by the passion and attention to detail that everyone on the Herban Feast team applies to their job.  It is truly inspiring to see the team collaborate on each event to ensure every client is 100% satisfied with our service.

With Herban Feast since 2019.

What is one food you could not live without?


What beverage are you enjoying when you are out on the town?

Well, as a mom to two teenagers, I’m sadly not out on the town much.  But whether I’m out or at home relaxing, definitely wine.

Where is your hometown and what is your favorite thing about it?

I have a two pronged answer because I moved from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Bellevue, Washington when I was in middle school.  So, my Fort Lauderdale answer is the beach – I will always have a love of the Atlantic Ocean.  My Bellevue answer is that I developed great roots here in WA and now get to raise my kids in a similar environment.

What you do you like to do with your free time?

I enjoy spending time with my family, notably my husband Scott and kids, Sydney & JT.  I also love hanging with friends in a casual setting like an impromptu BBQ with good food, wine and lots of laughing.  I like to stay active by playing tennis and running with my black Lab, Jersey.
