“Planning events should be fun,” declares Kristin, and she makes sure that spirit translates to our clients via our events managers—detail-oriented, festivity-loving pros who Kristin describes as “super-smart, thoughtful, and passionate about throwing a good party.” 

An industry veteran who has worked with us since 2004, Kristin got her start as a restaurant manager, a job she says delivered a “crash course” in the tough-but-rewarding culinary business. (When you learn that Kristin is a former rower who didn’t pick up the oars until college and managed to score a scholarship anyway, you understand something about her work ethic.) 

When she’s not overseeing the creation of memorable events, Kristin loves hanging out with her husband and their three boys. She’s fond of cozy nights at home, photography, paper crafts, and knitting.
