Office Staff

Brittany Estes
Operations Manager

Brittany, a Winston-Salem native, started her career with Split Second Sound not as an employee, but a bride! Brittany and her now husband, Scott, booked Split Second Sound for their wedding. Four years later, she retired from her 10 year run as a kindergarten teacher and joined the team as our Brand & Sales Manager. Don’t worry though, she still brings her laminator and pocket chart to work sometimes! Those who meet Brittany can’t help but instantly fall in love with her - her kindness, charm and bubbly personality make her our perfect, fearless office leader next to Diane! She can’t live without her two fur babies, Julius and Emma, or Diet Dr. Pepper and loves anything themed. Halloween is her favorite holiday and she is always open to celebrating anything and everything! When she’s not in the office, Brittany loves spending time with her family and friends or crafting up a storm. 


Maddie: “My favorite thing about Britt would have to be her constant positivity and love of life. She’s so much fun to work with and truly cares about our clients and staff.” 


Jenn: “My favorite thing about Britt is that she always has a smile on her face and knows exactly how to keep spirits high!”

Maddie Buchta
Sales & Account Executive

Proudly raised in Charlotte, Maddie graduated from the University of South Carolina Beaufort with a degree in Hospitality Management and missed the city so much, she moved back home the day after graduation.  After a rewarding and successful event planning career at Charlotte Country Club, Maddie is thrilled to be one of the newest members of the Split Second Sound family.  She is passionate about providing excellent customer service while getting to know her clients on a personal level.  She understands how overwhelming planning an event can be and she loves that Split Second Sound alleviates the pressure and stress of finding the best quality entertainment.  When she's not in the office, you can find Maddie spending time with her fiance, Mihai, and family and friends, planning her next vacation or obsessing over her cocker spaniel, Kylo. 


Britt: “Maddie is a bright ray of sunshine. She’s always willing to help, very thoughtful and generous and has such a great attitude! Best of all, she lets us use her unlimited Postmates membership, lol!” 


Jenn: “Maddie is so easy to talk to and she gives the best advice. I know I can go to her for anything. She’s so thoughtful and has the best attitude.”

Jennifer Abels
Customer Service Representative

Jennifer, one of the few who was actually born in Charlotte, joined the Split Second Sound family in February 2020. A graduate of University of South Carolina and temporary resident of Thailand, Jennifer immediately fit right in with her funny, witty personality and hard work ethic. She always keeps us laughing with her jokes and funny comments. Not only is she Brittany and Maddie’s lifesaver every day, but she cooks a mean casserole and even convinced Maddie to try dairy free cheese (and she liked it!). When Jenn is not giving a warm greeting on the other end of your calls or responding to emails, she can be found exploring Charlotte with her boyfriend, Ronny, spending time with friends and family and traveling all over the world.  


Britt: “One, she’s HILARIOUS. Literally makes me laugh every hour of every day. And I love that she’s her own person and always stays true to herself.” 


Maddie: “My favorite thing about Jenn is her personality! She’s so goofy and always has us laughing but she can also dive into a deep conversation. She’s wise beyond her years and we don’t know what we would do without her!”
