Greetings! My name is Veronica O’Donnell and I am delighted to be the newest addition to the Tall Guy and a Grill Team. I am originally from Chicago (yes a Bears fan), and I’ve lived in Milwaukee for almost 2 years. I graduated from the Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago with an Associate’s Degree in Culinary Arts. I worked for 5 years at the family owned and operated Buzz Café in historic Oak Park, Illinois. Before that, I worked in catering at the super fun, Honest Foods Catering in Chicago. I come to Tall Guy with an extensive background in catering operations in both front and back of house. I’m excited to share my passion for wedding planning and helping to make each couple we work with have a perfect wedding day.
In my free time I love being outside whenever possible, even during the cold Midwest winters. I’m a fan of playing volleyball and softball, and I’m close with my family who all still live around Chicago. I love spending time with my parents, brothers and sisters, and, of course, my sister’s dog “White Sox”. I love adventure, and exploring new and unique aspects of the great city of Milwaukee. There is nothing better than trying a new restaurant, checking out a street festival or simply relaxing with a long walk by the lake. Of course, like most people in Milwaukee, I always look forward to spending a lot of time at Summer fest.
I am thrilled to join Dan and his hardworking team at Tall Guy and A Grill, and I can’t wait to help bring Tall Guy and a Grill to the next level in 2015. I will be working full time at the shop in Tosa on Tuesday-Saturday. Feel free to stop in and say hello any time!
