The Straw That Stirs the Drink: Meet Marylee
Marylee brings passion and enthusiasm to each and every event or party she staffs and helps plan. Professional excellence, friendly and attentive service, and attention to detail are her calling card. And, as a people person, she knows it’s not just about the event; it’s about you, her client, and putting your needs at the top of her list. Your event should be effortless, and Marylee makes that happen. Every time.
Marylee’s attention to every detail for my party, from the number of wait
staff required to catering advice and her signature cocktail suggestion,
made my event not only a big success, it was also as easy as pie!
And let’s not forget your guests. Marylee understands what it takes to ensure your family, friends or colleagues are well cared for from the moment they arrive and their coats are taken to serving them fabulous food, great wine, cocktails or simple nibbles with tea or coffee. Leaving you free to enjoy yourself.
With a Bachelors of Science in Biology and a Masters in Organization Leadership, Marylee understands both the importance of getting the details right and how to best work with people—a winning combination in the event business. And a winning combination for Marylee as she lives her passion, helping people entertain with style.
Marylee boasts over 20 years in the industry. She holds certificates from TIPS, Wine and Spirits Education Trust and ServeSafe Food Handling.
Marylee lives with her husband Dennis, and their cocker spaniel, Ralph, in Stamford, CT.
