After growing up in Kansas City Missouri, Yvette moved to Dallas to study advertising at Southern Methodist University where she was involved with planning events as a member of Chi Omega. Following SMU, Yvette worked for the famed Pappas Restaurants and became the General Manager of Pappas Catering. Under her leadership Pappas Catering grew and became an award-winning operation locally, and internationally.
As Pappas grew, Yvette’s own leadership, career, and commitment to the special events industry blossomed as well. She served as a board member for the DFW Chapter of National Association of Catering Executives (NACE) from 2004 to 2007. She also was elected the International Live Event Association (ISES) Dallas Board on which she served for 6 years and eventually as President. She then went on to serve on international committees for the organization.
After more than 15 years of success in the special event industry, Yvette decided to use her skills, education, and creativity to benefit clients by launching Premier Special Events in 2009, which has since become Simply Mox. Yvette prides herself on providing a boutique style experience based on uber personalized service and taking the time to really know her clients. As she learns what makes them special and unique, she is able to plan and produce celebrations that represent them, and only them. She believes the event experience should celebrate both the milestones and the people reaching them.
