Perrie Maldonado - Catering & Conference Service Manager
Perrie Maldonado was raised here in Miami and considers herself a local community expert. She draws much of her style and taste from her Peruvian/Colombian roots as well as her family’s involvement in the fashion industry. Perrie has recently grown her career in hospitality as the new catering and conference services manager at Marenas Beach Resort.
When asked what she likes most about Marenas, Perrie answers: “We have a saying here at the resort, ‘Donde eres familia’ which means ‘Where you are family’. We live this at Marenas. Our employees, our guests and our local residents are all treated like family here. From a wedding on the beach to a bar mitzvah in the restaurant, my colleagues all pitch in to help me create the perfect experience. We want everyone who comes to our resort to feel as comfortable as if they were walking into their own home.”
When Perrie isn’t busy creating exceptional wedding and catering events at Marenas, she is hard at study while majoring in hotel management at Florida International University.
