Katya started her career with Starwood in 2004 when she joined the Food and Beverage team as Director of Outlets at a Sheraton in Philadelphia. After 3 years in operations she joined the Sales Team as Events and Meetings Manager. Katya has worked with both corporate and social clients and is still actively involved in all the planning as well as execution of the events. In 2007 – 10 years ago – she became Catering Sales Manager and Wedding Specialist at the same property.
In 2013 Katya spent a year at a Westin right outside of Philadelphia as the Wedding Specialist where she hosted classic and elegant Westin Weddings for up to 400 guests.
Recently her family relocated to the beautiful city of Chicago where she joined the wonderful team at the Westin Chicago River North as Catering Sales Manager and Wedding Specialist.
Katya loves weddings and is always here for her brides and grooms from the time of the initial inquiry to the time they cut the cake the day of the wedding. "Nothing makes me happier than seeing them walk down the aisle or enter the ballroom on their special day. I strive to provide personalized and detailed pre-planning services as well as on-site coordinator services for our guests."
More than anyone Katya understands all the planning that goes into making someone’s dream come true. She got married in 2011 and had her dream wedding in New Delhi, India.
When Katya is not working, she enjoys being a mom and spending time with her husband, daughter and son.
