My favorite part of live events is being with the client when they first see their event all come together. All of the details, planning and meeting has finally paid off. My second favorite part is knowing that our team at Phipps has exceeded their expectations! Every department at Phipps works collaboratively to ensure an excellent guest experience.

My favorite part of working an event is being able to be a part of the process leading up to the event. Then, seeing everything come together. Some things do not always go as planned, but it is my job to make sure the event is successful and they’re happy. All events are very important to me because I want them to be memorable.

I think I work in the happiest industry out there. There are few things more rewarding than working one-on-one with someone to make their wedding a dream come true and watching it come to life.

Events at the Conservatory are absolutely breathtaking, but with events comes a little bit of craziness behind the scenes. My favorite part in all of this is working through any problem that might arise with creative solutions to allow for a stress free experience for the guests and for the client.

I love the fact that we work with the clients from the beginning of their event planning all the way until the end. From their first inquiry to their big day, it is so rewarding to know that we have a huge part in making all the client’s visions come true. I love working with the Events Sales Team at Phipps because all of us enjoy the hustle and bustle of this industry.
