Nataly continued conquering the food and entertainment industry after obtaining a post-graduate certificate in Sports and Event Marketing at George Brown College, managing restaurants and small-scale events for 5 years. Now she is proudly one of our Event Administrators, living behind the scenes of events where the craziness also resides. 

The event planning industry is similar to a rollercoaster – never knowing what’s to come over the next hill. This feeling is what Nataly loves most about the job – pushing the limits of herself and of the industry only to see the best results!
