MollyLitberg

Molly Litberg

Catering Coordinator, Presidential Catering

CP Family Since: 2001
The Job: I handle all aspects of the logistics for corporate and non-profit events at the Reagan Library from beginning to end: menu planning, rentals, CAD diagrams, entertainment booking and coordinating with audio-visual teams.  It’s extremely rewarding to turn these details into a successful event for people whose trust and faith I’ve worked to earn!
Favorite: To be able to work from one venue, but get the pleasure and experience of working with a wide variety of clients. Some days it’s a Fortune 500 company or a politician, others it’s the committee of a local charitable organization. And every few years I get to cater to Presidential candidates... After 14 years I still get excited about what’s next!
Superpower: Making a personal connection with my clients
