Tara Weghorst – Event Sales Manager
Tara graduated from Texas A&M University in 2013 (whoop!) with a degree in Communications. Immediately following graduation, she moved to Austin, Texas and married her college sweetheart, Dustin. While planning her wedding, Tara realized she had a passion for events and quickly asked her wedding planner if she was looking for any help and as luck would have it, she was! Tara was hired as the Catering & Conference Services Assistant at Lakeway Resort & Spa where she worked on weddings and day meetings for a year before getting promoted to Conference Services Manager. Eventually, Tara and Dustin realized they were looking for a change and relocated to Denver, Colorado where Tara worked as the Communications & Events Manager for the Colorado Optometric Association. After three years in Denver, they both realized their hearts were still in Texas and moved back to Austin! Tara is excited to be back in the lone star state bringing events to life at such a beautiful venue!
