Meet Kate and Emily
Hi, I’m Kate and I’ve worn many hats while here in Oxford. In my 20+ years here, I’ve gone from the days of the old brown Walmart (where Barnes and Noble currently is on Jackson Ave), to seeing the first official “chain” restaurant come to this slice of Mayberry and now to raising my two kids here in Oxford with my husband.
In my time here, I have worked at the University, been a grad student, started a handful of businesses, my favorite (until now, of course) was A Bash events. It was an event planning firm I started on a shoe-string budget and grew to travel the world and eventually sell at the age of 29. From there, I joined the ranks in nonprofit communications and eventually, started my current ventures: 662 Marketing and Parents of Ole Miss. I have also served as the President of the Oxford-Lafayette Chamber of Commerce in 2015-2016, served on its executive board for six years and its board of directors for more than eight. I was born and raised in New Jersey, graduated high school in Florida and then went off to Ole Miss for college. Needless to say, I can relate to all of you out-of-staters out there.
A very kind POM reader once emailed me and said that I have a gift of hearing needs and fulfilling them for others. I don’t know about that, but I do know that this Jersey/Florida girl knows what it’s like to be too far to go home on a random weekend and forced to be reliant on my experiences. So, I bring to you POM, which I will do my very best to bring you the greatest local references, from the best place to get flowers, dinner, new tires or anything else in between. I really do look forward to being a helping hand and point of reference for you over these next four (or 5…maybe 6) years!
Hi everyone! My name is Emily Suber. I am a 2005 graduate of Ole Miss, and a LOVER of everything Oxford! I left here for a couple of years after graduation to spread my wings and see what all was out there, but when my college sweetheart and I decided to get married, we both moved back to Oxford to start our life together. Fast forward a decade, and here we are raising our two small children in this ever-growing college town that feels more like home than I could ever imagine.
I am originally from a small town in Tennessee, and was the only one from my high school graduating class to attend Ole Miss. My parents were born, raised, and attended college in Tennessee. They knew nothing about Oxford, Ole Miss, the Square, the Grove or even Mississippi. So when I heard about ParentsofOleMiss.com, I immediately perked up; what a GREAT resource! My parents would have loved to have a way to be informed about what Oxford is all about, where to do business, where to stay/shop/eat, ect.
Though my kids are not yet college-aged, I understand wanting to be connected and informed about what your children are involved in/where they are living/the culture and economy around them. That’s what POM is for. To help you stay in the loop. Please feel free to email me anytime with questions about Oxford or Ole Miss. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll do my best to point you in the right direction to get you the help you’re looking for!
