Pastides Alumni Center Sales Assistant

Location: Columbia

I grew up in the Dominican Republic where I worked with my family in humanitarian aid and community development. I am number seven of ten siblings in my family (that’s right – lucky number 7). After moving to South Carolina, I started building my career in the event industry by working in venue sales and client experience coordination for The Lace House at Arsenal Hill. I decided to change my career path, and began my journey with Southern Way Catering in January of 2022.

Though weddings have always been my bread and butter I also love working with music focused events and corporate gatherings. Every event allows me the opportunity to provide genuine dedication to each client in bringing their diverse and personalized ideas to life, which is incredibly fulfilling. My favorite part about working at Southern Way in the team culture the company displays. It is something I always admired when working along side the company in the hospitality industry, and ultimately what drew me to joining the team.

When not at work you can find me with my Husband, Caleb, and our pet cactus, Juan Pablo, who we love dearly When not at home I enjoy being outside – if it’s warm I am always by the pool, tubing the river or being a beach bum!
