Catering Manager, Stacey Chrisman

Stacey Chrisman grew up in Southern California, beginning her career in events on the client side of the desk. Someone asked her what her dream job was, and she responded, “I want to plan events for people all over the world where they just show up and not have to do anything but have a great time.” The Universe answered and she landed a job with an Incentive Travel Company and got to do just that, traveling to fun in the sun destinations like Costa Rica, Fiji, Panama and the Virgin Islands, planning a variety of events. After that position, Stacey moved into Corporate Meeting Planning, specializing in Pharmaceutical Dermatology and Cosmetology. She later moved into hotels, selling and servicing weddings and social events.

Stacey describes herself as the “Mary Poppins of Catering!” She took on the nomad life of a Task Force Catering Consultant, working at over 20 different hotels before deciding to finally settle back down in Arizona again to enjoy time with her family and dogs, Sadie & Gable. Stacey’s favorite thing about being an Event Manager is developing relationships with her clients and watching their families grow. Her favorite event elements are linens and paper – the smallest details make the biggest impact!
