Julie Paine is the President and Owner of Allora Catering & Events. She is a member of the Park City Women’s Business Network, and proud to be

Growing up Greek on a farm in Providence, Utah, Julie learned the importance of food at a very young age. She spent as much time as possible with her parents and other family members, learning the basic principles and techniques of farming, gardening, harvesting, canning, cooking and living off the land. Upon turning 18, she moved to the East Coast to pursue her education and professional life.
Julie’s first career was in the corporate worlds of American Express and eBay where she managed global incentive programs and corporate engagement for over 20 years. Her travels took her all over the United States and Europe where she worked with international sales & marketing teams, managed corporate communications, and organized and directed high level executive programs.
Julie’s second career is much more interesting. She abandoned her corporate life and earned a degree in Culinary Arts. She attended post graduate studies in Verona, Italy, focusing on Italian language, culture and cuisine. Upon returning to Utah, she worked diligently in the hospitality and concierge markets, leading educational culinary programs, and ultimately creating, managing and opening the new concept restaurant Mollie & Ollie in downtown Salt Lake City.
Julie and her husband Greg continue to spend significant time in Italy. They both share a passion for all things Italian and plan to expand their private event business into Italy where they will live for part of the year.
