Mary-Anne Rullan grew up in Southern California, and knew that she wanted to be a part of the hospitality industry. She attended the Art Institute of California in Orange County, where she studied Restaurant, Catering and Culinary Management. She put the skills she learned there to work in a variety of hospitality jobs, including two years at the St. Regis Hotel and Resort in Orange County. She is passionate about creating great dining experiences, and spent several years as a Special Event Manager at restaurants within the Urban Kitchen Group in San Diego. In 2014, she moved to Northern California and started working with the Daniel Patterson Group. She decided that her true passion was for being in the restaurant every day, and took on the role of General Manager of Haven, where she offers hospitality to guests in the dining room, at the bar and lounge, and for private events in the restaurant.
