As Event Manager, Dani facilitates communication between planners, clients and vendors; and works closely with CME staff to make sure that each event is a smashing success.
Ambitious from the start, Dani always knew she wanted to be an event planner. She completed more than a thousand internship hours — including time with Caplan Miller Events, as well as Austin food gurus Crave Communications and upscale floral and décor providers Merveille Events — during her time at Texas State University. Her passion for events comes from the gratification achieved when a client’s vision becomes reality. And she thrives on staying busy, relishing the research-to-execution process that goes into planning each event.
Prior to starting at CME, Dani worked on the events team at The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch, in San Antonio. There, she learned first-hand just how many elements must be organized in order to put together a successful event. Her responsibilities ranged from welcoming guests and waiting tables, to ordering supplies, to providing design input and managing clients’ contact with vendors.
Dani values CME’s high design and production standards and appreciates Austin’s eclectic, charming and exquisite event venues. Moreover, Dani recognizes the importance of the city’s engaged events community — the easy relationships CME has forged with each vendor and supplier leads to efficient implementation, and ultimately improved client satisfaction.
