Her background in promotions, retail, fine art and real estate turned out to be the perfect ingredients to create GTTC. MJ is your first contact with GTTC dealing with inquiries and bookings. MJ is responsible for the GTTC website, sourcing suppliers and venues. She will be happy to answer any questions you have regarding GTTC.
