Events Operations Manager
I was born on Christmas Eve in Southern Pines, NC. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Management and Minor in Business Administration from NC State in 2008, and was well into my career at Catering Works by then. Prior to that, I held many part-time jobs to get me through school. I worked for UPS, Footaction USA and Damon's Bar & Grill to name a few. What started as a part time job to get me through school, has afforded me opportunities that I didn't anticipate and so I have remained with the company and been fortunate to see it operate from many angles and been able to grow with it.
I started at Catering Works as a part time delivery driver, then was promoted to the full time Warehouse Manager. I also worked in the special events department, performing a variety of different event service roles. I was promoted to Delivery Manager in 2009, and my daily duties now center around the very busy Delivery Division of Catering Works. I am responsible for overseeing the delivery crew, scheduling the deliveries for the day and managing the ever growing vehicle fleet. I also handle purchasing and inventory control for a variety of supplies and consumables that make the catering wheel turn.
During my free time I enjoy playing golf, attending all types of sporting events including golf tournaments, Durham Bulls, Carolina Hurricanes, & NC State Athletic Events. I also enjoy going to my parent's beach house at Holden Beach. My favorite recipe is Corn Cakes with Maple Butter.
