Jobs Landed: Jill S. Deacon

As the event planner for West Michigan Caterer, I am responsible for meeting with potential clients, showing facilities, planning and coordinating events, daily correspondence with previous and future clients, supervising scheduled events, and many other details to ensure each event has a perfect outcome. I knew I wanted to work in the hospitality industry when I first began working for a catering company in college, and now have been given my dream opportunity to work as an event planner. I love getting the chance to work with people and to help them make their dream day a success. After moving back to Grand Rapids, I spent some time applying to multiple companies, and was contacted shortly after by their Director of Operations for an interview, and was hired shortly after. It’s been everything I hoped, and very exciting getting to do what I love.
