Smith joined the hotel in November 2010 as one of two social catering sales managers. Her market consists of social events including weddings, bar mitzvahs, showers and non-profit functions.
As a catering sales manager, Smith meets with existing and potential clients to introduce them to the hotel, its banquet facilities and all of the possibilities for a memorable event. She is also designated the exciting task of creating the “magic” in every celebration. It is this magic and creativity that has distinguished The Townsend Hotel as the place to host an event that’s destined to be unforgettable.
Prior to joining The Townsend Hotel, she was the director of catering for the Matt Prentice Restaurant Group. With her experience in catered events ranging from 20 to 5,000 people, Smith brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to every event. With 22 years in the industry, she knows that placing importance on the small details has a great effect on the success of the event.
According to Smith, the best part of her position is getting to know her clients and making sure that their events are a reflection of their personalities, hopes and expectations. Each celebration is a unique experience.
She previously attended Oakland County Community College with a focus on general studies.
