Our Staff


Building on its reputation as one of the premier venues in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs, our extraordinary staff will work with you to help achieve your dream wedding or special event. The Monte Bello Staff provides the elements for your dream wedding or event with their amazing service and attention to detail, making your experience unforgettable.


I have been executing and overseeing weddings and all types of events here at the estate since 2006. I feel that an outgoing yet thoughtful attitude is the key to a successful event. My staff and clients would describe me as an attentive person that is committed to making our events remarkable. It is my pleasure as the Executive Director to demand excellence out of myself as well as my staff to ensure that your day is amazing and one not to forget.





Growing from within the company, I have had the pleasure of working at the estate since 2008. I have benefited from floating through several other positions before becoming the director of special events by being able to fully understand the urgency and detail that goes into making each and every event a success from all aspects. Working hands on with my clients and executing each event to reflect their individual wants and needs is something I truly love. My staff would point out that you can always find me smiling. I am laid back and high energy, but I have a no-nonsense approach to ensuring that each event is exactly what the client envisions and more.


I have firsthand experience with all things wedding related after planning my own wedding in May 2015 (yes, wedding planning can be really fun!). My favorite part of being in the event industry is helping clients add personalized details to create unique, one-of-a-kind events. My degree in Communication and Public Relations benefits me in specializing in marketing and social media at The Monte Bello Estate. Our staff would describe me as a positive person who is committed to making sure you and your guests have the most unforgettable day!
