Shelby Sturtz


Shelby started her career with Sahm’s after graduating from Purdue University in 2013. She studied Hospitality and Tourism Management which she says was the perfect fit for her. Throughout college, Shelby worked at The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, French Lick Resort and Casino and at Purdue in events and catering at the football stadium. This experience validated the fact that she loved planning and organizing. When she is not in the office, one can find Shelby attending summer concerts, out on the lake, spending time with her niece Eliana, or traveling to different states to visit college friends. As Sahm’s event and catering coordinator, Shelby works closely with our clients to make sure satisfaction is guaranteed. In fact, Shelby says her favorite part of planning events and weddings is getting to know the clients! “By the end my clients seem like family to me.”



Courtney began her career in the event industry almost 10 years ago. She has worked as a florist as well as an event coordinator and in catering. The details of each event and seeing the individuality of those planning come into focus are the driving force behind her passion. Courtney grew up in Indy, but attended college in Durango, CO. When she is not busy planning you can find her on or near a body of water with her Westie Finn, cooking for friends, or at the movies or a concert with her Big Lug of a boyfriend.

“I look forward to each and every opportunity to help people celebrate the things most important to them.”



Lisa’s career spans three decades in a variety of management positions, including medical and school office management, and most recently food service management. Lisa began working with Sahm’s at the Tower in 2009 with a focus on accounts receivables, although you’ll find her helping to manage various aspects of the catering and cafeteria operations. Her passion is customer service, aiming for a seamless and stress-free process from start to finish for our clients. Lisa is an Indy native and enjoys the city but loves to get away to rural settings. She is a proud mother of two grown children, grandmother to one (adorable, of course) and looking forward to more! “I want clients to know that we genuinely appreciate your business, whether a small gathering or full service function, and you can always reach out to me for help with anything!”
