Lizzie brubaker, founder

Lizzie Brubaker is an innovative young woman living in Nashville. After graduating from Southern Methodist University’s Meadow School of the Arts with a Convergent Journalism degree, Lizzie began her career incorporating her organizational and detail-oriented skills at CNN, becoming an Associate Producer for the Piers Morgan Tonight Show.

Through leadership involvement at a NYC church, synagogue and service agency, Lizzie realized how much she enjoys helping others and creating moments of unique or unexpected joy. In 2014, she joined the team at Union Square Hospitality Group where she enjoyed interacting with guests and contributing to memorable meals and special occasions.

In 2017, Lizzie took the plunge and moved to Nashville to work with 21c Museum Hotels. When she's not managing the floor or creating memorable moments for guests she's dreaming up the next great party.

Lizzie founded the Joy of Life Project as a way to follow her calling of helping spark joy in the lives of others. She combines her East Coast smarts with her Southern sensibilities to form the perfect balance to make things happen with joy in her heart and pep in her step.
