BIO:

What other career allows you to be part of the most important celebrations in peopleΓÇÖs lives?  Over the course of my 21 years with RussoΓÇÖs, IΓÇÖve had the privilege and honor of planning and coordinating hundredsΓǪno, actuallyΓǪthousandsΓǪof events, including weddings receptions, non-profit fund raisers, corporate gatherings and social celebrations.  My absolute favorite thing is to see these plans IΓÇÖve captured on paper come to life!

When IΓÇÖm not in the midst of an event, IΓÇÖm likely to be hanging out with any or all of our six grandkids, checking out local restaurants with my husband Don, or at a CardinalΓÇÖs game, keeping score.

Favorite Menu Item:

Smoked Tomato Bisque, BLT Rigatoni….and cake trimmings, especially chocolate chip, on the bakery’s cake-baking day
