Meet Lisa Kivel of Event Designs Casino Entertainment in Rancho Santa Fe

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lisa Kivel.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Lisa. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I started my career in 1990 after graduating from the University of Arizona. I graduated with a triple major in Real Estate/Finance, Spanish and Communications. I decided to follow my heart and moved to Los Angeles. As I was ready to embark on a career in International Commercial Real Estate, I was offered a job by gentleman by the name of Chip White. Chip was the little brother of Wheel Of Fortune’s Vanna White. As a kid right out of college, it was an offer that was to good to pass up. I began working to assist the Producers, Directors and Casting Directors on both Wheel Of Fortune, Jeopardy, and The Candid Camera Show.

After living many very exciting years in Los Angeles, I moved to San Diego when I got married. I started my own Full Service Talent and Booking Agency in 1995, working primarily in the wedding industry. Although my company was very successful, I was also interested in expanding the company in may different directions. One direction that I was particularly interested in was developing a Mobile Casino Division. I saw a need for it as more and more of my clientele called asking for it. It would be many years later that I made this dream a reality, hired a Master Carpenter to build incredibly beautiful – real to scale casino tables. With the list of clientele and reputation I had already built, it was easy to get my casino business up and running quickly. To date, we are one of the Top Providers in the greater San Diego area.

Has it been a smooth road?
For the most part, it has been a very smooth road. Every small business has its share of “growing pains”. In the big picture, having owned my own business for so long, I had the skills to avoid the many pitfalls a small growing business can face.
