Joey Hahn, Executive Private Dining and Catering Chef

Prior to his career at The Phoenix, Hahn gained culinary experience working at various locations such as Enoteca Emilia in O’Bryonville, Embers in Kenwood, and The Bistro on Main in Findlay, Ohio, where he worked as executive chef. Hahn was born and raised in Findlay where he started working in the restaurant industry at the age of 13. His passion for the industry, however, did not start there. Hahn fell in love with the culinary arts while cooking in the comfort of his grandmother’s kitchen as a child and he has not looked back since!

Abby Rawlings, Catering and Event Manager

Abby has been fulfilling her dream of being a wedding planner since 2017, when she initially started working as an intern at The Phoenix. Abby’s commitment to grow and shine was evident, as she traveled from Louisville on the weekends in college to learn the ins and outs of events at The Phoenix. To this day, Abby loves helping her clients plan the weddings of their dreams.
