Event Planner, Business Mentor & Wine Expert
Asheville, NC, USA
Hi there! My name is Andrea and I'm thrilled to share a little bit about myself with you. With 15 years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry, I've had the privilege of working with some of the best in the business. From Michelin-star hospitality groups to James Beard nominated restaurants and Relais and Chateaux resorts throughout the US, I've truly honed my craft. My expertise lies in events, and I've had the pleasure of planning and executing countless memorable experiences. Whether it's a corporate gathering, a wedding, or a special celebration, I thrive on creating moments that leave a lasting impression. I've always had a passion for wine, hospitality, and food and beverage, and I bring that love and knowledge to every event I work on. After achieving so much in my career, I decided to take the leap and start my own event planning company. With a focus on luxury events and destination weddings, I offer full-service planning and design. It's incredibly rewarding to be able to bring my expertise and creativity to the table, helping clients bring their visions to life. What sets me apart is my extensive experience in the industry. Having worked in various prestigious establishments, I've gained a deep understanding of what it takes to create exceptional experiences. I've learned from the best and have developed a keen eye for detail, ensuring that every event I'm a part of is executed flawlessly. Outside of work, I love to travel, enjoy patio sunset moments with my dog, play games with family and friends, and explore new restaurants (especially if they have a solid wine program!). My partner and I recently finished up a year-long road trip all over the US - so feel free to message me if you’re looking for tasty recommendations or cool places to explore! If you're someone who shares my curiosity for wine, restaurants, hospitality, and events, then I'm the ideal candidate for you. Whether you're looking for advice, planning services, or simply want to chat about all things related to the industry, I'm here to help. Let's connect and create something truly special together!
