I've always loved putting on a show.
When I was little, you’d find me starting clubs and ‘businesses’ to entertain my family and neighbors. I attended the University of Denver and received my degree in Theatre Arts.
In between starting a family, I worked for the Denver Center of Performing Arts, Central City Opera, and the historic Brown Palace Hotel and some of Denver’s most sought-after venues. I realized how much I loved hosting events – it was just like putting on a play: the in-the-moment, living, intoxicating…
I parlayed that experience into Venue General Manager positions, and since then I’ve been opening & managing various venues in the Denver market, including the Highlands Ranch Mansion, the Lakehouse at Cherry Creek, the Falls Event Center, and I just started consulting for Parkside Mansion
I started receiving inquiries to help other venues, and realized my true passion: private event venue consulting. I specialize in helping venues just like yours in building short-term and long-term plans to generate and sustain profitability. I love to dig in, get excited about the brand, build pricing, build budgets, build operations plans, audit staffing plans, generate marketing/sales plans, and more. I love the small details, the big picture, and everything in between!
The very best part, for me, is the time I get to spend with my family. As a consultant, I can lend my time to these venues I am passionate about and still have time to turn up the volume, grab some glow sticks, and cut a rug hosting living-room raves with my husband and three sons. It’s truly the best of both worlds – aren’t we lucky?!
