Why FantaSea?

I’m a die hard party planner. I didn’t necessarily go to school for it or realize at a young age that it was my calling (which I now know it is).  It started with grand birthday parties, then prom committee, eventually PR events and constant networking in the event industry.  I tried working the 9-5’er but it just was not for me.  I like an engaging workday and I cannot do the same thing day in and day out.  When I heard about the opportunity to work with FantaSea Yachts, I was ecstatic.  I immediately thought of glamorous parties and gorgeous sunsets in the background.  It was the kind of job I had been dreaming of.

Dream job or not, starting a new job is always scary.  For me, I was coming from some place comfortable and some place that I liked.  But it wasn’t quite enough.  From the minute I walked in the door at FantaSea, with the streaming water fountain and smell of candles burning, I knew I had ended up in the right place.  I was a little intimidated by the volume of parties that come onboard.  But once I got to know the staff, many who have been working with the company for 15 or 20 years, I realized there was a rhythm to the events and it was all very manageable.

What I found is that I by being true to myself and honest about what I enjoy doing, I was able to weave my way through the corporate world and finally find a home base where I could excel.  I am so thrilled to be here at FantaSea and am really looking forward to being a part of more and more events.  It was scary to make the move but I am so glad I did.
