Whitney was born & raised in Santa Clara, CA. She started in the event industry at a private golf country club after working as a receptionist and being involved in assisting the event coordinators. She liked being an outsider looking in and seeing ways she can be innovative and different as each event is unique. She loved seeing the expression of clients coming in the day of their event and finally seeing their hard work come together. She got promoted to Event Coordinator and began her career. She has coordinated weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, corporate events, and other life events between 20-3,500 guests over the last 10 years. One of the aspects she love's about choosing this career is taking the smallest idea and creating something unique and special for each client.  In her free time, she love's taking day trips to the beach with her husband, son and dog. She is grateful for the amazing mentors she has had so far throughout her career and looks forward to expanding her knowledge of the business and paying it forward.

Weddings Reviews

Management of Michael's changed in January 2019 and the faculities went through a remodel. When reading Yelp reviews of Michael's you should focus on reviews after Jan 2019. I used Michael's for a dinner banquet with about 50 people in Feb 2019. This event was similar to an event I held at Michaels in Feb 2018. We had a cash bar coacktail reception, followed by a buffet dinner. We had a presentation setup with projector , screen, podium, and sound system. The previous management did a good job in 2018, the new management did a better job. The food tasted better (all items were fresh and tasty with good portions). The new Director of Private of Events was easier to work with in planning and ordering than last year. Parking is very easy for dinner quests. Michael's is an excellent alternative to local hotels and larger restaurants in Silicon Valley if you want to hold a banquet event with good value for money. I would grade my 2019 experience as excellent and I expect I will hold a similar event again in February 2020 at Michael's
