Meet Our Team

Yassmin Low - Event Manager

Yassmin was literally born into the restaurant industry; her parents owned several restaurants growing up where she had a playpen setup in their office & was behind the host desk by the age of twelve.

After graduating high school, Yassmin became a server at Big Fish Grill, Glen Mills where she worked for 5 years to support her way through college. She graduated with a BA in Psychology, Minor in Philosophy from Neumann University. She decided to further her education & attended Rosemont College to receive her MA in Trauma Psychology. Hospitality being her first love, she was offered a Sales & Marketing position at the current place she was Serving that she could not pass up. After a year, she was promoted to their Director of Catering & knew her future was in events.

In 2020, Yassmin came back to the Big Fish Restaurant Group as our Event Manager! Her favorite events are socials (specifically Baby & Bridal Showers). She loves to decorate, the excitement on her clients’ faces, & seeing an event through from the initial planning to the day-of.

Fun fact: in the midst of planning all of her clients’ events, Yassmin recently got married in October of 2023!

Val Howell - Event Coordinator

Val has lived in Delaware her entire life & is what the industry people call a “Lifer”! She has done every role from Serving to Managing with a total time in the industry of 33 years! The position she has enjoyed the most thus far is her current one with us at Riverfront Events.

Val’s favorite part of her job is when clients & guests have a fun time during their event & leave with amazing memories! Val does not have a particular type of event she gravitates towards as she loves them all, but would pick weddings if she had to. Val adores being a part of making their big day the best it can be!

Fun fact: Val is a beach bum at heart; she loves putting her feet in the sand & watching the ocean during her time off.
