Deborah Lew was born and raised in Southern California where Hollywood, Los Angeles and Newport Beach all but define the term ‘extravagant’. With all of the esteemed annual events like the Rose Parade and the Oscars in such close proximity, the desire to create grandiose affairs left Deborah with her own passionate yearning and flair to produce her own events.
Deborah graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English.
“Communication is the key to success in all walks of life,” she says.
After working as a Supervisor in the Food & Beverage Department at Tustin Ranch Golf Club in Tustin, Deborah became the Food & Beverage/Event Manager at Strawberry Farms Golf Club in Irvine, and worked as a Wedding Coordinator at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach where she was awarded a Service Excellence Award by the Orange County Tourism Council. Deborah then went on to become the Convention Services Manager at the Westin South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, where she was named 2007 Convention Services Manager of the Year by Starwood Hotels and Resorts, North America. Deborah continued her career in hospitality at Braemar Country Club in Tarzana, where she served as the Member Relations Director.
It was at each of these places where Deborah met most of the people who contributed to the ideas and foundation of Dream Days by Deborah, and allowed her to grow as an event planner.
Aside from her Catering experience, Deborah also spent time with ESPN Original Entertainment which allowed her to work on prestigious events such as the X Games and the ESPY Awards.
Currently residing in Los Angeles, Deborah is actively fulfilling her life-long dream of planning and coordinating events, while also working as a Sports Journalist for the two-time Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings. In her spare time she enjoys her family and friends, figure skating, and her Pug, Chile.
