  • What is your "why"? Why do you do what you do?
    I have always loved to serve others, and started working in the hospitality industry in my early years of high school. I completed a 2 year program for Hospitality and Travel at the Bradford school of business, and managed and opened several venues here in Houston including Hearsay Gastro Lounge, Double Cross Martini Bar. I love to create and really enjoy making each service experience special for the guest. I have always took the role in training and managing others, and love to work with people. I also ran the bartending school, was an instructor for TABC seller server training, and enjoy sharing my knowledge and teaching others the business. I understand that planned celebrations and events are a 1 time occasion that are very special to the client and or family, and I really enjoy assisting in making that moment memorable by providing exceptional service, set up, and unique cocktail and catering options. I also hold a promotion license and enjoy promoting and educating staff and customers about specific products including spirits, wine, specialty foods. There are so many options in the market and sharing knowledge and watching the products move, helping the brands gain exposure and repeat customers is a passion of mine as well.
  • About me
    I started the company over a decade ago with my passion to serve and create with a desire to build a brand. I used all of my past experiences, training, and knowledge to build a system that would allow me to grow to offer the detailed attention to set each event apart. I incorporate on the job training to open doors for those that want to learn and be a part of our team, even at the beginning level. I constantly strive to improve and offer new ideas/ creations to all events. Our company provides event services and management for events. We provide staffing(bartenders, barbacks, food servers, cocktail servers, ushers, and hostesses. We also are a licensed promotion company for liquor, wine, beer, and specialty foods working one on one with brands and distributors to promote, and sell products. We offer cocktail creation mixer packages which is a great idea for happy hour events, team building, ladies day out, or just a reason to get friends together and learn the art of creating cocktails. We have a deliver prep and go service providing signature infusion service for cocktails and mocktails with delivery and set up, without having to hire staff. This is a great cost effective way to offer a unique and delicious option for any occasion. Lastly we offer tailgate packages which includes crowd management, supplies, and set up. I work really hard, am a single mom of a 19 year old son, Aaron Caleb, that is also now helping with the business. I also help my mother as partial caretaker for my younger brother that was diagnosed with a mental illness after an injury at 18 yrs old. I have an older brother that has an IT company focusing on security and web applications, and a father that has a ranch, raising and training Paso Fino horses, and offering horsemanship clinics. Faith, family, and growth(education) is in my blood:) Raised by a grandfather that was president of the school board for 28 years, served as mayor of our city and deacon of the church. I put my heart into my work as it is what I love to do, and I hope to leave lasting impressions upon those that I serve.
