In her time as the special events manager for Surrender Nightclub and Encore Beach Club, Stratton has received some pretty interesting requests, including one for a 6,000-pound elephant to add atmosphere to a private event. “Trying to ask the other departments of the hotel and figure out all the different things I would need to coordinate that was definitely a learning experience, and the responses, stares and looks I got were pretty funny.” The trunk show never did happen. But, at the end of the day, Stratton maintains that her job is all about providing a service and ensuring that guests consistently have ‘OMG’ experiences, whether it be a posh birthday party, corporate event or bottle presentation. Outside of work, ‘OMG’ gives way to DIY. “My garage is full of power tools. I love to give old furniture new life,” Stratton says. “Last weekend, I disassembled the dining room table I made two years ago and turned it into a sofa table.”
