Gemma Bird is the newest addition to the RauDZ Creative Concepts family.

Gemma came to the Okanagan from Tropical North Queensland in Australia in 2013 in search of mountains and cooler weather.  Arriving in Canada, she took up the position of Event Coordinator at Silver Star Mountain Resort, working two years with the company and slowly building a restaurant and catering company for friends on the side.  Gemma stepped back from the ski hill operations and moved full time into developing 1609 Restaurant and Lounge in 2015, utilizing her marketing and public relations skills.  It was here she helped build the brand and the business, becoming one of the most sought after catering companies in Vernon for weddings and corporate events.

We are thrilled Gemma left the mountain and joined us here in downtown Kelowna as Operations and Events Manager at The Okanagan Table.
