Julie Szymanski, Catering Sales Manager · Steenbock's on Orchard

Julie grew up in the Madison area and went on to attend UW-La Crosse where she graduated with an Organizational and Professional Communications degree. After graduation she lived in La Crosse for a year where she worked at a private golf course as an Assistant Manager. Realizing that her true passion was in the special events industry, she moved to Chicago in 2013 where she worked as the Director of Events at a catering company for two years followed by a Private Dining and Events Manager with Lettuce Entertain You for four years. Julie made the move back to Madison and joined Food Fight in Spring of 2019. She values Food Fight’s “say yes” culture and is excited to share her knowledge and experience the the amazing group of individuals. “I love how no day is exactly the same and you meet so many new people in the hospitality industry. I enjoy the challenge of taking someone's vision and turning it into a reality. It brings me great joy when people come back to you time and time again because they trust you and your services.” When she isn’t working to create lifelong memories for people through events, Julie likes to travel and spend time with her fiance, Bryan, family and friends. “One of my favorite getaways is my family's cottage in northern Wisconsin where we like to relax by the lake, kayak and dive into a good book.”
