At My Annapolis Office, we consider ourselves lucky to have such an amazing community of members. Each month we have the pleasure of interviewing one of those great people and their business so that everyone has a chance to learn more about those within our community. This month we were able to speak with Tanya Waltrick of T. Rose Bridal Shows International. Take a look below to learn more:

How did you get started in your industry?
I began my journey as a wedding coordinator hired by wedding planners and live event producers to aid in facilitating their weddings and events.
What is something about your business that most people do not know?
That I partner with my sister to produce private dinner and party events.
Where do you see your business in 5 years?
I see a hybrid of virtual and live events. The hybrid events are here to stay: the convenience of having an event online for guests to enjoy at their own pace. We will be adding more online products and services (such as a digital bridal guide and shopping for wedding products and services online).
Tell me about yourself?
I’m proud to be a Greek mythology nerd! The first thing on my Christmas list is the updated Greek Mythology Dictionary! I read books constantly. I love to chat with people I don’t know! (My sister and I are known to start conversations with strangers!).
Other than work, what are you passionate about?
My family and their future, how we will grow, and how our future family tree will look. I am also looking forward to my future travels to other countries far and wide.
What types of activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?
Greek Mythology, reading, binge watching my favorite series, scrapbooking, and collecting magnets from everywhere!
What is your favorite place to eat in Annapolis? Favorite dish there?
Miss Shirley’s – I love the shrimp and grits.
Why did you choose My Annapolis Office and how has working here helped your business?
I chose it because it had all the amenities we needed and we would be able to host meetings with business associates in private. I love that the office is perfectly prepped for meetings.
