Hello… My Name is Tricia Galas! I live in the suburbs of Chicago, am a mom of two wonderful teenagers (yes you heard that right) and a wife of 18 years now.

In my spare time I enjoy crafting, decorating, gardening, cooking, organizing, visiting antique shop’s and taking long walks with family and friends.

 

My career started in restaurants from the time I was 17 and my experience includes everything from a burger joint to a 5 star hotel.  My education consists of business and fashion merchandising, however, I’m a hands on type of person and learn best by doing.  

 

While my kids were growing up I had the opportunity to work for Twomaytoz Event Catering which is a family owned business in Oak Park. It was a wonderful part time job that provided extra income and a way for me to get out of the house and speak with adults. Over the past 12 years I’ve had the opportunity to work in many different venues in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

 

I’ve participated in planning events of all types and I enjoy how everyone collaborates to pull off a successful event. From the venue, to the caterer, florist, dj or band, bakery, staff and rental companies. It takes a lot of hands, its fast paced and sometimes even a little chaotic. Yet I feel truly blessed to be able to do what I love and take part in so many special memories.
