Meet Louise Castellano

Meet Louise Castellano, Event Manager

Louise Castellano’s introduction to the event business began at a small town bakery in Pennsylvania, as a cake decorator.

While attending Temple University in Philadelphia, Louise’s passion for events continued while working as an events assistant for the Philadelphia Film Society. During this time, Louise was responsible for planning the events within two annual film festivals. These events ranged from opening and closing night parties, pre- and post-screening events, to private celebrity receptions.

After completing her undergraduate degree at Temple University, Louise continued her events and catering career through corporate work at Sodexo.

At Columbia, she manages a broad range of events at Faculty House, from University conferences and seminars to social events. Louise’s day always starts with a giant cup of coffee and review of her calendar.

Louise enjoys being part of the Faculty House team and is impressed with everyone’s enthusiasm. In her personal time, she loves to travel, especially to sunny locations. While in New York, she enjoys dining with friends and being outside with her dog, Harper.
