Catering & Event Consultant
As a native or Raleigh, I grew up and attended Broughton HS in Raleigh and attended UNC W . I moved back to Raleigh after college to be with my friends and family. I worked for a retail food broker for several years on the Harris Teeter account. I then transferred to the food service side of food-brokering for McIntyre Sales and called on restaurants, hotels, hospitals, etc. This is where I met Jill at Catering Works. After 15 years at McIntyre Sales and many food shows later, I transitioned to part time. With a husband and two daughters, I decided to limit the traveling so I worked for various caterers in Raleigh on a part time basis. My friend Courtney and I decided that weekly trips to the Farmers Market were too cumbersome with small kids, so she ventured on a new project called The Produce Box. I worked for her for 5 years as an area manager, as she built her business of local produce delivered to homes and businesses. This was another part time job and with kids in school, I added another job to my daily responsibilities by joining Catering Works. Working in this fast paced office in corporate sales, has been a huge learning experience. The repeat business of corporate sales and customer relations is something I really enjoy. My daughters Libby (15 yrs.) & Ann-Daniel (11 yrs) keep my husband and I busy with a lot of soccer, school, girl scouts and pool activities. We like to camp, and visit my in-laws at the beach.
