The Event Professor

Venue Consulting

Venues need a professional, custom sales plan.  What works in one venue does not work in another.  

We work with your unique environment to enhance your  brand, train and energize your team, build systems, and provide the tools to achieve GROWTH!

Event Management

Large or small the Professor can manage them all.  From creating a production schedule, to conducting onsite tours and training for staffing, we can manage a part of the event or all.  Industry professionals contract The Professor to add value for their clients, and increase time and focus.  

Nonprofit Fundraising Experiences

The press and our nonprofit clients agree that our events are big hits...probably because we design with the guests experience in mind. We know how to work with your committee  as a partner.  We strive to support your goals and the organizations mission. 

About The Professor

I have always been passionate about the components that make up a successful guest experience.  The Venue, the Food, the Music, the Decor, the Details, and the Human Touch all contribute to the experiences The Event Professor produces.  

I have a Midwestern foundation and an education in Culinary and Management from Johnson and Wales University in Charleston.  Over the years I have honed and broadened my craft with unique experience in hotels, restaurants, non profit organizations, and first Class event venues.  

I love to share knowledge and experiences.  I love creating and seeing that creation come to form. I love working with owners and managers of venues to see their vision come to life.  I enjoy working with my personal, professional and non profit clients.  Together we become  a team to support one another and build memorable experiences .  


A unique skill set and understanding of the industry allows me to provide value for non profits, and resources for management clients to maximize time and investment.
