Name: Annie Rose Garjian
Title: Sales and Event Planner/ Event Supervisor
Describe your role with Pure Joy:
My main role at Pure Joy is helping clients bring their vision to life by creating the perfect menu for their special day. Relieving the stress and uncertainty of organizing and planning a party, by listening to their needs, allows them to focus more on spending time with their family and friends, which is essentially our main goal.
What is it like to work at Pure Joy?
With such an enthusiastic and intelligent group of people working here, every day is a new chance to learn something from your colleagues. Seeing everyone’s different visions come together to produce fantastic events really gives you a sense of creativity and freedom. After a successful event, the feeling of accomplishment and success from satisfied clients motivates us to make every event even more. Being able to rely on each coworker’s element of professionalism and skills make it easy to produce a final product that stands out from other event companies.
What is your favorite part about working for Pure Joy?
Being a part of a team where your thoughts and visions are heard makes it easy to come to work each day. Also, the love for events and watching people have some of the most memorable times in their life is something that I think most of us here are born with. I still get teary-eyed at every Father-Daughter dance or special toasts to the Bride and Groom, even after all the events I have produced.
If you were a cocktail, what would you be and why?
Hmm - I would have to say a Cosmopolitan. It is a classic. Strong, a little bit sweet, but it does not mess around. 😉
What do you do for fun?
I have been working in the event industry and traveling in the Caribbean for the last ten years between the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. I enjoy boating and island hopping, adventurous hikes in the jungle, chasing waterfalls, snorkeling, swimming, learning about cultures, customs, and cuisine, from other countries. Trying to master Spanish by immersion and spending time with friends, family, and my boyfriend Raul. I love to cook and try new things and am looking forward to my new adventure in Santa Barbara.
A Note From the Executive Chef
Annie is a true Joy Maker through and through, a lifer, she's been at this since her first job and I suspect her last one too, it is in her bones. Her work ethics and incredible intellect are among our greatest assets. Annie Rose has got an uncanny ability to read the room, and understand exactly what people want & need - not always the same things - and help them achieve their vision. She naturally masters the Pure Joy specialty of listening. It is such a pleasure, and a real honor, to work with such a fresh, contemporary professional, and very likable lady.
