Name: Gina Barber
How long have you been working with ATTC? Since 1999. This is my 14th season.
In one sentence, what do you do all day at your job? Organize Organize Organize.
Most memorable experience since working at ATTC? In 14 years, there have been many, but one that tops the list is winning our first CATIE Award for Most Innovative Food Trend in 2006. Accepting the award on stage with Linda was one of my career highlights.
Food you can’t live without? Cheese – any kind, anytime, anywhere.
What is your drink of choice? Outside of coffee, when I do indulge, it is a Reisling Wine Spritzer or Sangria. Refreshing Summer Drink!
Favorite Restaurant? Via Della Pace in New York City…..I have not been able to get there for a few years, but I have dreams about their house made mozzarella!
What would you be doing if you weren’t working here? I would like to be a 911 dispatcher. Several years ago, I volunteered at a police department in Colorado, part of which was with the dispatch unit. I was impressed with their ability to stay calm in any circumstance and have taken a lot from that experience and applied it to what I do today!
What do you like best about working at ATTC? I enjoy being able to help our clients create a memorable event……taking what they have envisioned and making it happen. My favorite moment of any wedding is seeing the bride in her dress for the first time!
