    Amy Lasher

    I’m a single mom of two awesome kids, Claire and Liam.  When I’m not planning fun events at The Crest Center and Pavilion, I enjoy coaching Middle School Girls’ Volleyball, Basketball, and Cross Fit.  My commitment is to my kids and work.  If I find myself with some free time away from those commitments, I like to run/work out and maybe just veg out with a nice local brew.  I am a self-proclaimed beer snob and love the Asheville scene.  I try to play “tourist” as much as possible so I can direct my clients to the new “fun stuff” in downtown Asheville.  It’s always a pleasure to help my clients create a wonderful and memorable event here on the mountain.  Whether it’s a wedding, prom, business meeting, fundraiser, or family gathering, my main goal is to have the person planning the event be as much a guest as everyone else!  It’s my job to make it easy, stress free, and fun!  With the rest of the M7 Team beside me, this is a guarantee.

    Lauren Otis

    Lauren has lived in Asheville since 2012. A Rochester NY native and Arcadia University alum (Glenside PA), Lauren joined the sales team at the Crest Center and Pavilion in April of 2015. Since that time, she has put her time management, communication, and memorization skills to good use with thorough detailing and planning of events on Crest Mountain. She loves helping clients create their perfect day and strives to make the process stress free and fun. When she isn’t planning events, Lauren can be found working out, snuggling her sweet puppy Trinity, cooking, or listening to true crime podcasts.

    Mary Minton

    Mary is the most recent addition to the Sales Team at The Crest Center & Pavilion, joining the lineup in January 2018. Graduating from Appalachian State University with a degree in Professional Writing, Mary is an excellent communicator and loves making that personal connection with clients. Having worked in hospitality for over a decade, she prides herself in always contributing genuine customer service and reliability in every interaction. Her favorite part of event planning at The Crest Center & Pavilion is seeing the look on the client’s face when the room is set, details are ready to go, and the party is ready to begin – nothing compares! Outside of her professional life, Mary enjoys seeing live music, reading & writing fiction, visiting local craft breweries, and hanging out at the house with her awesome tuxedo cat, Floyd.
