Five Questions With Event Specialist, Peighton Ballant:
- How many years have you been with Dubsdread Catering?
I started working with the Dubsdread Catering Team in October of 2018, so just a little over three years now!
- What is your college and/or life experience that prepared you for this position?
In the Fall of 2021, I graduated from the Rosen College of Hospitality Management at the University of Central Florida with a degree in Event Management. I’m really excited to be done with school and able to focus 100% on my career. Before joining the catering team, I worked at The Tap Room at Dubsdread as a hostess for a little over a year, which really helped me understand the ins and outs of Dubsdread Catering and the difference between a restaurant operation and a catering operation.
- What are your plans for your future career/personal growth?
I want to full immerse myself into learning all the different roles and event needs that only comes from working on the Dubsdread Catering Team on a daily basis. In my personal life, I’m trying to focus more on things that make me happy and am hoping 2022 will be the best year yet!
- What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
When I’m not working, I enjoy going to the gym. I love time with my boyfriend and fur-children Dexter and Ellie. I also love to go to the beach whenever possible, and binge watch some trashy reality shows on Netflix with a glass of wine when I want to unwind.
- What do you enjoy most about your position?
I love that feeling of accomplishment after a long day in the office when you can see all the effort our team has put into planning and coordinating someone’s special day. Being a part of something larger than myself is fun.
