Meet the Team
Lainey is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to hospitality and events and has been applying her expertise to L’Abattoir’s Private Dining Room events since 2015.
After finishing her Tourism and Hospitality education in the lower mainland, Lainey spent much of her early career in the Okanagan working at Mission Hill Family Estate as their Food and Beverage Coordinator. She spent her time learning all about the local wine industry alongside planning events from large corporate gatherings and concerts to intricate multi-course winery dinners.
Her passion for hospitality brought her back to Vancouver where she joined the opening team at Boulevard Kitchen and Oyster Bar. While refining her skills even further and sharpening her wine knowledge, she also helped set the high standards of service that guests continue to enjoy today.
When Lainey joined the team at L’Abattoir, she brought her high standards and trained her private dining team to match the level of service that L’Abattoir guests had come to expect at one of the top restaurants in the country. She’s been integral in creating a private dining experience in Vancouver that is second to none.
After training her service team, Lainey moved into the Sales and Events Manager role where she can be found today. She is absolutely meticulous and covers every detail with her clients to ensure nothing is missed and an unforgettable experience is had by every guest.
