Our Facilities Maintenance Technician

Norman Taylor

Mr. Taylor has been with us since our doors opened, and has continuously outdone himself with the upkeep of our storage facilities, equipment, rentals and event space.  No job is too big or too small, and his proud ownership of his responsibilities allows us to put our best foot forward every day. His dedication and hard work is invaluable, as MILK would find it impossible to maintain its pristine appearance without him.  

Our Event Technician

Antwain Rhodes

Antwain was a part of MILK’s creation and birth years before we hung our awning. He is full of spunk and personality.  He has become an incredible asset as a part of our staff.  He has made himself a critical part of how smoothly the transporting, packing, installation and breakdown of all of our décor items needed for events happens…not just here at MILK, but most especially when we are off-site. This includes linen, props, equipment, glassware, silverware, etc. He is always willing to step in to perform any other duties as asked to meet our clients’ needs flawlessly.

Our Event Technician

Princess Black

Princess has been with us for two years, having initially worked with us during summers and breaks when home from college. She enjoys assisting with creating one-of-a-kind events for our clients. From decorating, to serving as “bartender,” or even making sure the linens are steamed perfectly, she willingly steps into whatever role is needed to pull off an extraordinary experience each and every time!  

Our Accountant

April L. Black-Hamm

April holds a Bachelor of Business in administration and a Master of Science in accounting, and she thoroughly enjoys every aspect of business. She has gleaned vast knowledge from non-profit organizations, corporate America, and small business but thrives in the field of small business and up-and-coming entrepreneurships.

Using a bit of business savvy and a love of numbers, she brings to MILK a conscientious way to make our clients’ dollars stretch as far as they can – and then some more, bringing their dreams to life. Through her love of number crunching, budgeting, and detailed tracking, her diligence also helps keep MILK going in the direction we want…in the black!
