Meet one of The Center’s Venue Coordinators, Katie:

Venue Coordinator, Katie!

While pursuing a degree in Hospitality Management and Tourism at the University of Kentucky, Katie’s infatuation for the event industry blossomed. Between semesters she collaborated with several highly-acclaimed event companies in the Greater Cincinnati area. Through these experiences not only did she gain more exposure and knowledge of the many facets that make up the industry, but also learned how rewarding the process is when you see the happiness and satisfaction on a client’s face. Katie has always enjoyed celebrating people through thoughtful, well-crafted moments, whether it’s organizing and executing a small family get-together or a 400-person wedding reception. “Turning someone’s vision into a beautiful life moment is what makes this job so worthwhile”, Katie tells us. Since graduating in May of 2017, she has genuinely loved her time here at The Center and we couldn’t be any more grateful to have her as a part of our team!

Katie and Finn

When Katie isn’t making sure you look great coming down the aisle, she spends her free time entertaining her almost 2 year-old German Shepherd pup, Finn. Right now, you’ll probably see her exploring new hobbies since she has just recently relocated to Cincinnati. While her search for new adventures continues, she has always enjoyed painting, getting a good sweat on, and trying local craft beers.

Here are 5 interesting facts about Katie:

1. I’m a massive Kentucky basketball and Ohio State football fan. Best of both worlds!
2. My favorite celebrity is Reese Witherspoon, hands down!
3. You can usually find me at Skyline Chili once a week… No shame!
4. Interning with Courtenay Lambert Florals and Event Design last summer made me fall in love with elaborate flower arrangements and table scapes!
5. I may or may not have a Pinterest board solely dedicated to the British Royal Family!

Always all smiles!

This chocolate lover takes pride in what she does and loves seeing all of the planning come to fruition! Her tireless work ethic, ingenuity, and creativity are a testament to the way she aspires to make any clients’ dreams a reality! When it comes to your big day, Katie is your girl!

Take a moment to leave Katie a fun note on our Blog or Social Media Channels and welcome her to The Center family. We know you’ll love getting to know her as much as we have!
