Meet the Haus 820 Team

There’s a lot of moving parts over here at Haus and there is always something going on inside our warehouse doors. With weddings, corporate events, styled shoots, Holiday parties, Haus Mrkts, and much more, it takes a lot of help to get everything done, as you can imagine. We’ve got an incredible team here to help us out and we couldn’t be more thankful for each and every one of them!

Laura is our owner and woman in charge here at Haus! “I have loved watching Haus 820 become a home to our community. We’ve been able to host thousands of people, hundreds of parties and also be involved with some incredible charity initiatives. It’s been more than I ever dreamed. While I was aware of the need for a large-scale event venue in Lakeland, having a front row seat at many of our city’s celebrations has been an absolute joy. I’m really grateful for the entire Haus 820 staff and all they pour into their roles. I enjoy being able to guide and direct the course of Haus 820- dreaming up new opportunities and helping figure out how we can continue to serve our community.”

Christina is our Director of Operations. Haus truly could not function without her and all the hard work she does for us. “As Director of Operations, there is no hat I haven’t worn when it comes to Haus 820, Art/ifact and The Collective. My mission is to make each event a day to remember and each client a friend. I am beyond thankful for how supportive our community has been of our space and how fast we’ve been able to grow as a company because of that support. I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds for both Mass Market and our Lakeland community.” We could not be more thankful for Christina and the light that she is in our community.

Meet Danielle, our Event Liaison. “As the event liaison, I love working with our clients from the first time they walk through the door, and throughout their planning process. I’m the person clients will see the day of their events, making sure everything is running seamlessly for a day to remember. I love seeing the way Haus 820 is becoming a hub for community events and the way it is bringing Lakelanders together. I can’t wait to watch our space harbor creativity and fun in the years to come.”

Abby is our Social Media Manager. “I love how working at Haus gives me such a creative way to utilize social media in our community. I get to see all the moving parts during the planning process of each event and then get to see people’s dreams brought to life, and then I get to share those memories with you all! I love the variety of my job and how no two days are the same. Some days we’re hosting community events, some days are styled shoots or weddings. But when I get pictures and videos back from photographers/videographers it’s such a blast to see all the fun people had at these events and show people just how amazing this space is. I’m so excited for the future of Haus 820 and to see all the amazing events that happen here in the coming years as we grow and expand.”

Shannon is our Finance Administrator here at Haus. Every office needs a Shannon, both because she keeps our finances in order and because she’s one of the most delightful and sweet people you’ll ever meet! Bookkeeping, spreadsheets, and budgets are what she loves doing and we could not be more appreciative of that. “I love the beacon Haus 820 has become in our community. From its location to its style it is definitely a venue “above the rest”. While the venue is GREAT, the staff I get to work along side is even better!! I absolutely LOVE Lakeland and places like Haus 820 are the reason why!” We are so thankful to have Shannon as a part of our team, she is such a positive ray of sunshine and very hard worker.

Wayne is our go to guy around here! He is such a joy to work with, is extremely helpful, and is always a positive light around the office. He owns his own speaker and sound business called Your Audio Rental Pro and is currently in school getting his Bachelor’s Degree in Business. He served in the Army for almost twelve years as a helicopter mechanic and supply NCO. He serves in several capacities around Lakeland: He works as a property manager for Gospel Inc., as a handyman for Haus 820, provides maintenance for Looks Great Ent., and wrangles soundboards for his church and United City. For a while now, he’s been the guy that friends call when they can’t get the light to work or need a new TV installed. So it seemed natural to extend his expertise into a business that helps individuals, small businesses, and non-profits with their sound equipment needs. Keep an eye out for him in our Instagram stories with the hashtage #WheresWayne!

We couldn’t get everything done without the help of these three, Wayne, Carole, and Shawn. They are the ones who stay up late and help break down events, aka the real heroes! They are always having fun and giving us a reason to laugh around here and we couldn’t be more thankful to have them on our team.

We hope you enjoyed getting to know the faces behind this place and that you think of us for your next event!
