Michelle Kaiser


Michelle Kaiser always knew that someday she wanted to turn her passion for details and love of entertaining into a career.  After graduating from college, getting married, and becoming a mom she jumped on every chance she had to plan parties for family and friends.  With a communications degree and a Master’s in Administrative Studies, her career took a path of facility startup, marketing, and program management.   But that creative fire continued to burn and she eventually left the corporate world for an opportunity to work part-time for a local caterer.  It was during this time that the opportunity of her dreams presented itself and Town Square was born. 

Michelle loves planning events of all sizes and admits that in the beginning, the idea of Town Square was simply to have a beautiful venue to get married or have a party.  Six years later it has expanded  to be an all inclusive venue with services that allow Michelle to show all of her passions through cakes, flowers, food, and all those little details that makes each event extraordinary.

Michelle lives in Paola with her husband Kelly and her 2 very busy children.

Kelli joined the Town Square family over 4 years ago and loves working to make each event unique.  Owning her own home-based business has given her the ability to be flexible and creative when it comes to getting everything done.  She just never knew how important those skills could be until she came to Town Square.  “You never know what each day will bring. From doing floral arrangements for tomorrow’s wedding, to preparing linens for a dinner for 300 guests – we all just pitch in and do what it takes to make sure every event is a success!  I love that each event we put on brings a new experience.” 

Kelli lives in Paola with her husband Jeff and enjoys visiting her 4 sons in college.
