Larissa graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management with an emphasis in Meetings and Events. The most rewarding aspect of being a part of the Vario team has been expanding her knowledge, being a part of amazing events, and enhancing Vario’s company culture that she has seen grow tremendously since she arrived. Being a part of the Vario team has given her an abundant amount of insight into the events world, increased her skills she already possessed, and has given her the opportunity to explore new avenues of the event industry under very skilled and talented individuals.
She began her career in food and beverage for Darden Restaurants, she then worked for Hollywood South Productions as an event assistant where her curiosity for the event industry sparked. From that point she worked at Valley View Casino and Hotel as a Lead Liaison for the company assisting marketing with events on and off property and focused on creating amazing guest experiences. All of these opportunities have given her the exceptional professionalism and customer service mentality that Vario provides its clients.
In addition to her versatile work experience in Hospitality, Larissa has a passion for music, adventures, and travel! She toured with her Madrigals and Vocal Jazz group to Hawaii for their Heritage Festival in 2005. She has been an active participant in team building activities, company softball leagues, and talent shows. She studied Marketing abroad in Barcelona, Spain, and was an events ambassador for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee annual conferences in Napa Valley and Washington DC. All of these unforgettable experiences have given her the confidence, personality, and drive to have the passion needed to be successful in this industry. With her focus on event coordination and execution, she cannot wait to make your event a dream come true. Every detail matters and she truly cares about receiving complete satisfaction from her clients. Larissa is excited to create a personalized experience on your next event as your Account Manager.
