Behind Oogles n Googles™
Party Development, Operations, Finance, and Supply Chain Management
Danya Mendell received a BA in Business from Indiana University, Bloomington, IN with emphasis on Human Resources.
Danya owned and operated a human resource business for five years. She ran the operations portion while her partner ran the sales end. In addition to her business degree and extensive Human Resources experience, by running the operations of her business, Danya also obtained experience in finance, accounting, administration, and purchasing. Previous to that, Danya worked in the human resources field for six years. Seven years ago, when her oldest son was born, she sold her shares to stay home with her children. For the past seven years, she has worked in human resources part-time and has raised her three children, ages two years, six years, and nine years. The combined experience of owning and running a successful business and being continually surrounded by her children, their friends, and their friends' parents gives her great insight into running Oogles n Googles. Danya has also great insight into what parents, of children ages three to ten, want and also where they go to get it. This helps with developing the parties and with knowing where to go to advertise.
