My Vynamic color

Colorado Summer / #692dac

I have been planning events and experiences in the Philadelphia area for over 40 years. I am thrilled to bring my creativity, passion, experience and expertise to the Vynamic culture.

Philadelphia, PA

Get to know Janet.

Favorite Vynamic event

My favorite Vynamic event was the first one I planned at Lincoln Financial Field. It took negotiating and relationship building in order to achieve both our budget and vision for the day. It was a huge success and the relationships made have continued to be strong and worthwhile for the team.

Favorite professional work experience

I am so proud of Culinary Concepts, the off-premise catering company I started in 1987, which grew into a multimillion dollar company in 25 years. It is something I dreamt of as a child. We catered hundreds of events a year, and this experience certainly shaped my professional work ethic. I am so proud of all that I accomplished in those 25 years, including managing the growth of my four children.

Keys for success

The key to success is relationships. I pride myself in the relationships I have formed over the years. I wouldn't be at Vynamic today had I not accepted an invitation to meet Dan Calista, Vynamic's founder. Also, I believe reciprocity is important. Treat others as you would want to be treated.

Professional passion

I am most passionate about creating memorable events, delicious food and always being inclusive. I wouldn't be the person I am today without the support, friendship and love of everyone around me. My mantra... the more the merrier!

Why I joined Vynamic

At the time, Vynamic was a 60-person company and I was asked to curate experiences and events. I was used to catering to hundreds of people, and unfamiliar with working in an office environment. It proved to be the greatest risk I have ever taken, and continues to bring me joy and challenge daily.

As a child, I wanted to be

I always wanted to have a restaurant, cafe or catering business. I loved to cook and knew that would ultimately be my career path.

My Vynamic color

Colorado Summer reminds me of summers spent in Basalt, Colorado. I experienced so much joy being in the great outdoors: hiking, biking and taking in all the beautiful views. It is truly my happy place. My color is swirled together in a tie dye pattern, representing me as a child of the sixties but also reflecting the colorful scenery ; wildflower purple, Colorado blue sky, sunshiney yellow and green green grass.

Favorite sports team(s)

My favorite sports team is the Philadelphia Eagles. My family is the longest season ticket holders in the franchise history. My entire family bleeds green. That passion and excitement continues into my work, as I am responsible for our Vynamic suite at the stadium.

I could teach you how to

Cook using whatever is in your refrigerator and pantry. So many people like to plan their meals, but they would be surprised how you can brighten any ordinary meal with the spices and condiments they already have. It’s all about not being afraid. You can always fix the flavor to suit your taste.

My family

Is the most important thing to me. My grandparents instilled this in me from a young age, and always made a great effort to get us all together with our first cousins, as often as possible. We even travelled overseas together many times, as they believed that travel was the best way to bond and educate. The tradition continues, and now my children are connected with their cousins, aunts and uncles. Every year, we have a family reunion and enjoy togetherness.
