Michelle Matson - Event Specialist / 2017
I come to Catered Too by way of an event venue that was lucky enough to have Catered Too as the in-house caterer for many years, so joining the team felt like coming home to family! I am thrilled to be part of a team that shares my passion for creating events and customer experiences that last a lifetime, and that allow us to share our expertise with a wide array of clientele. I have always enjoyed getting to know my new clients on a personal level as we begin to plan their event so that I can ensure to use my years of event experience to add thoughtful details that make their events truly reflect who they are and what they are trying to share. The Bay Area is such an eclectic place, and being a part of the hospitality industry allows for the opportunity to participate in so many aspects of the varying cultures that each day at work is a new learning experience, and it is wonderful!
I find that the greatest crossover for me between my personal hobbies and work is in the cold, delicious, hoppy art of BEER! I love beer, I love the craft behind it, and I love the ever growing and changing community and industry that creates it. Being able to sell The Brew Bus and put together beer menus that help to reflect the feel of an event and pair well with the menus is my kind of fun, and working with clients that share the same passion for beer is my favorite!
When I am not helping clients with their events, my husband and I enjoy golfing, playing softball, seeding time at the coast, wine tasting and traveling with our dogs and ever growing family to support new breweries. We are forever in search of our new favorite brewery and beers!
If I had to pick a favorite food it would probably be anything that comes on a cheese and charcuterie board with olives!
