Shirley, originally from Grosse Point Michigan, has lived in Nashville for over 12 years. She’s a mom to three boys and works full-time as a hospitality recruiter. Shirley has held various roles from event server to General Manager in the hospitality world. She did some short stints in childcare & logistics but keeps coming back to what she knows best!

- Simply Events went above and beyond -

" Shirley and her team are SO beyond amazing and I just have to take a minute to brag on them! From the pre-wedding communication to the stunning presentation of the appetizers, Simply Events went above and beyond. They worked amazingly hard to ensure perfection and it showed in everything they served. They rolled with the punches, were professional and most of all, SO ready and willing to help with a smile on their face. Do yourself a favor a hire them for all your catering needs! "
