Meet the Simply Events Staff Members

We put on numerous events all over central Florida, and our staff members not only do all the work to put together a successful event, they also do the hands-on, dirty-work at the event. You can always find our owners and coordinators setting up an event, breaking down an event, taking out the trash, assembling tents and canopies... you name it! The Simply Events team is extremely humble, and we love to share our passion for events with everyone.

Drew
Co-Owner

Drew is one of the founding partners of Simply Events. He believes that anything can be accomplished with hard work, dedication, and surrounding yourself with the right people. He says that “we went through a lot of struggles early on with 2 people putting together entire events. I was basically the labor guy & in 2013 I swear it poured at every event that we did. But it has been amazing to watch the growth. We now have an incredible staff, that keeps growing.

When she’s not working, she enjoys traveling all around the world and going to concerts. Taco bout a FABulous employee! 💓
