Staff Feature: Dave Thomas, Event Coordinator

I constantly give myself the license to explore a new path and indulge in something different. Go ahead - Be Creative.

I have over 12 years experience as Marketing and Communications Services Manager for a product design firm in New York City and then returning to Southeastern Connecticut to operate my own retail, floral and event planning business. My past experiences have proven beneficial as well as a natural progression to the world of event planning and catering with A Thyme to Cook. I am dedicated to assisting our clients with an unwavering commitment throughout the process. In addition, I pride myself on being detail-oriented in coordinating all of your wedding or special event needs. My creative eye is another asset to our clients, enabling me to expertly assist in the creative set up of each function.

In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering for various local causes, antiquing, gardening (my serenity), and spending time with my family and friends.

Staff Feature: Emily Secchiaroli, Office Assistant

I have worn a lot of different "hats" while working at A Thyme to Cook since 2001 - from serving food, to loading trucks, to helping with photo shoots! But now, most of my time is spent as an Event Floor Captain, Party Manager, or Office Assistant. I love being able to see the behind-the-scenes planning at the "cookery" translate into beautiful celebrations!

Outside of the cookery, my time is spent spoiling my two nephews whom I adore! I am also busy working on my own wedding plans as I am newly engaged - the numerous weddings I have seen will surely be an inspiration! In the mix of it all, I am in the process of completing my Master's in School Counseling and decorating my new home.
