Glint Events – Meet Our Team!
The Glint Events team has grown quite a bit in the last few months, and we thought it was about time to reintroduce ourselves. With a larger team, come more ideas, opportunities, insights and most importantly, laughs!
As always, there is our trusty, mug-hoarding, busy-boss-lady, Kate. It’s hard to believe that a mere six years ago she was a one-woman show and is now playing mama bear – teaching the rest of us how it‚Äôs done. She’s a passionate go-getter¬†who pours herself into every endeavor she takes on. Her extensive experience in the event industry allows her to manage any event with unmatched precision, skill and finesse. There’s never any doubt that Kate will bring the client’s vision to life and ensure the entire planning experience is one to remember.

Shortly after Kate started the company, Emily came on board. With Kate’s do-it-all entrepreneurial mindset, Emily quickly became her right hand, as well as her voice of reason. Together they tackled the RVA wedding industry, planning and coordinating one event¬†after another. Quick on her feet, Emily has always been known for her sound¬†judgment calls and ability to work through any day-of stress that comes her way. She exudes calmness and our clients find relief in working with her during this fun, and sometimes stressful, time in their lives.

As the demand for corporate services grew,¬†Kendall made her way onto¬†the scene in the summer of 2016. Her lively spirit and can-do attitude¬†were the missing links this once dynamic duo needed to harness the company’s¬†full potential.¬†Since then, you can find Kendall out and about networking and getting to know people¬†from various industries across town.¬†Her business savvy skills, combined with her bubbly¬†personality and eye for detail truly set her apart when it comes to planning. She excels at¬†helping clients plan their special event¬†all the while managing a stress-free environment.

Katie, our event planner at Historic Mankin Mansion, is a hopeless romantic to the core. Her favorite part of every wedding day is watching each and every couple exchange their vows. She pours¬†her heart into making sure every¬†wedding has its own unique¬†sentiment and her knack for perfection always ensures¬†a seamless journey for every couple she works with. Katie is a dreamer through and through, and her optimistic attitude helps bring creativity to every single event she’s involved¬†with.

Our¬†newest member to the team is¬†Anna. Anna is a recent VCU graduate and because being a full-time student wasn’t busy enough, she has experience working at venues like The Hippodrome and putting in long weekends at Historic Mankin Mansion. She is currently¬†busy organizing all of our marketing and social media strategies while also¬†learning a lot about event planning. If you’re inquiring about the Mansion or interested in¬†a tour – she’ll be your first point of contact! Anna brings a sunny attitude to any situation and embraces every opportunity to produce¬†a wonderful event. She loves the hustle and bustle of a wedding day and all of the painstaking details that go into producing a magical event.
