Name: Jody Goush
Title: Sales Manager

Best Thing About Job: Meeting and interacting with people from all over the country.

Event Horror Story: A large annual event needed a final night dinner. Booking the event depended on it and the ballroom was taken. We were able to secure an off-site venue that we could cater at. The group was so pleased that we went out of our way to accommodate their dinner that they have already re-booked their event for next year!

Hobbies: Shopping & Gardening

Pets: One fur baby Sadie Valentine.

Pet Peeve: When you speak to or smile at someone and they completely ignore you. But that doesn't stop me from continuing to smile.
