Mandi Bumgarner. As our Custodial and Office Coordinator, Mandiann is a jane of all trades. She has over 25 years janitorial experience cutting her teeth at the tender age of four working alongside her parents in their restorative cleaning business. A starving artist in her teens she turned to retail management. She finally found her calling by combining the two career paths and becoming a key staff member in our busy operation.

Noah Hensley is our Event Utility Specialist and you can find him setting up, cleaning up, and preparing rooms for events.

Chris Carlson is our newest team member and comes to us with years of experience in the AV world. He works closely with Sal to ensure every event goes smoothly.
