Meet the Special Events Team

The Special Events Team at Catalyst Ranch consists of two seasoned event professionals who have years of experience with a huge variety of events -- fundraisers, wedding ceremonies and receptions, baby showers, private corporate dinners, Bar & Bat Mitzvah receptions, pop-up dinners, you name it! We roll up our sleeves and accept any unique challenges. Creative problem-solving are Tatiana and Jody’s specialties and our support staff of Ranch Hands makes the Catalyst Ranch run like a well-oiled machine. Over the years Tatiana and Jody have orchestrated many of Catalyst Ranch’s own interactive and collaborative events that entertain clients, friends and fans.

Jody Devins

Director of Client
Services & Marketing

Catalyst Ranch is an innovator in the meetings and events business. I work to strengthen our client relationships and bring new, creative clientele who share the idea that where you work helps how you work. Our clients also believe that environment can have a huge impact on the outcome of their event be it corporate or social.  It’s an honor to work with our special events manager behind the scenes in order to ensure that every client has their expectations exceeded. Whether it’s a meeting or social event, our space helps set the stage for our clients most memorable experience. 

Throughout my years at the Ranch I have worn many hats, gained an intricate knowledge of the space and all the subtle nuances and touches that make it a special place. It also means that I have a boatload of experience from working on a vast variety of events over the years and am eager to share my expertise and experience with many more meeting and events clients!


The Ranch Hands are helpful, cheerful, energetic, creative problem solvers focused on making Catalyst Ranch a joyful place to be. The camaraderie and esprit de corps is readily apparent. They’re also interesting individuals with a breadth of diverse interests that cover just about every subject you could broach. And there is more than one impressive stage actor/singer lurking among them. Don’t be surprised when you experience a sense of déjà vu the next time you check out a local Chicago theatrical production.

Special Events Manager

The Wonderful World of Special Events is indeed a fantastic department to be a part of! Catalyst Ranch is already a magical and unique space, but once the space is transformed from a meeting to an event the charm and whimsy is abundant! Helping to create that aesthetic is truly rewarding. Many hands play a role in the culmination of all the events to ensure the client has more fun than humanly imaginable!

High heels never stop me from jumping in and helping out when it’s necessary. On event day, you might see me up on a ladder hanging up signs, or on the loading dock guiding vendors. Anything to help our clients and partners execute the best event possible. Every year, Catalyst Ranch works with many NFP clients and their fundraisers. It’s a great feeling to know that we have helped raise much needed funds by providing guests with a stimulating environment and on-site support for a successful event.
