“Everything was beautifully done.”
“Thank you for planning and executing the perfect party for us Saturday night. Everything was beautifully done and we are getting rave reviews about the food. As always, it was delicious.”
Growing up, I’ve always been sociable. Once I became a mother, I noticed more and more that I was the one willing to entertain guests and plan family events. I found real joy in it! My son was a student at a prestigious, private school in which I became heavily involved in helping plan events and supported fundraising efforts. During this time, I was also attending IUPUI working towards my Bachelor’s Degree with a certificate in Event Planning and Management. To complete my certificate program, I was required to do an internship.
During my internship with Annie- O’s, we used MBP Catering as the caterer for the majority of our events. That is when I first became familiar with the company and its staff. One person in particular was Christina. A year later, I reached out to her and asked if there were any open positions available at MBP. There weren't any at the time. However, I was fortunate when out of the blue, in October of 2014, Christina contacted me about an open position as Mary Beth Poe’s assistant. I met Mary and was offered the job. My first year was a whirlwind and I was thrown into MBP’s peak holiday season. With a background in event planning, I thought I knew what I could expect working for a catering company. I quickly learned that there is ALWAYS more to learn!
I grew so much from working directly with Mary that when there was an opening for an event coordinator, she knew I was ready to move into that position. I enjoy meeting with clients and helping them plan their event, whether it’s corporate, social or a wedding (my favorite). Helping others shape their vision into reality is my specialty!
