HOW THE LOVE AFFAIR BEGAN
Ever since I was a teen I loved to throw parties. If I wasn't having one for myself I would talk my friends into letting me throw one for them. There's just something about getting people you know or love together in the same room and celebrating! Although, I'm pretty sure I inherited my creativeness from my talented mother, my passion really hit me while I was planning my wedding in 2004. I loved every little tedious detail from beginning to end. However, I knew I could not do it all my self and needed help. I knew what I wanted, but I knew I could not pull it all together without a professional's insight. So from then on I enlisted the help of a wedding planner, Vickie, that I am eternally grateful for. I was able to tell her what I wanted, and she knew just how to make it happen. I was too busy working full time and chasing a two year old around to dedicate the time I needed to make the wedding the success it was, as people still talk about it today.
Over the past few years I have been actively pursing a career in the hospitality industry by working to obtain my degree in Event Management. I have enrolled into the International Live Events Association (ILEA), which will allow me the opportunity to stay in tune with the latest trends and designs in the event industry. Over the past few years I have also worked for various catering companies throughout the city and developed strong relationships that assist in planning unforgettable events. Milestones such as birthday parties, family additions, reunions, product launches and fundraising are just a few reasons to enlist in our services.
When I'm not planning events, you can find me spending time with my family, watching reality TV, or sipping on a Mango Margarita! Event planning is a natural passion for me. I love everything about the process and I truly enjoy working with my clients while creating personal relationships. It's not always just business with me, I believe an event specialist is more than just hired help, it involves trust, communication, and commitment just like any other relationship and that is something I am 100% dedicated to provide.
