#TeamTuesday: Sarah Catmur

In her role, Sarah manages the rental of Dixon venues for weddings and rehearsal dinners, corporate and nonprofit events, and private events. Her days are typically filled with new event inquiries, venue tours, contract signings, and organizing details for upcoming events. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, her usual routine has changed as she’s shifted to primarily working with clients to help them postpone their events to ensure they can safely host their event once circumstances allow, while also booking new events for late 2020 and the coming year.

Normally at a relatively cozy cubicle in the office, her dining room table now serves as her workstation, with notepads and OneDrive keeping her on track instead of file folders and her work desktop. Continuing updates to the city’s COVID-19 policies and procedures keep her on her toes with postponed groups looking to stay on track and new groups hoping to book, while other activities, like updating and organizing event photos, watching webinars, and updating paperwork fill in the gaps in the day.

And through all this work, her pup, Morty, hangs out at home for moral support (and to encourage stretch breaks a.k.a. “throw the ball in the backyard” breaks”).
