Who am I?
I was born and raised in the Great Lakes Bay Region, Midland MI, and have recently relocated to South Lyon, MI after tying the knot myself this past September. I am a 2017 Central Michigan University Alumna with a Bachelor’s degree in Recreation and Event Management with an emphasis in Commercial Recreation, along with a business minor in Professional Sales. I have become Internationally Certified in Wedding Planning, Internationally Certified in Event Planning and have been a Certified Planner/Coordinator since May 8, 2017 when I started my 30-week unpaid internship with a fellow wedding/event planning company.
Upon completing my internship with Splendid Events Company alongside my wonderful mentor, Andrea, as well as becoming a member of their team since 2017 and starting my own company in February of 2018 - I have completed my dream of becoming a full-time, professional and fully certified Wedding Planner and Event Planner.
In my free time I enjoy interior design/decorating, creating wedding stationary and other collateral materials, as well as planning a variety of life’s celebratory events. It is a wonderful thing when passion meets work and I am beyond grateful for a career that frees me from the typical 9-5 schedule, allows me to travel and visit breathtaking and historical venues across my home state, as well as work with all romantic couples in love, bringing their dream wedding day vision and goals to life!
While I am very passionate, motivated, creative, detail focused, organized and innovative, I am also very family oriented, adventurous and a lover of Michigan’s great outdoors. I spend the majority of my time with my Husband and our two husky pups at our family lake house, engaging in many water sports and boating during the summer months and snowmobiling throughout Northern Michigan/Upper Peninsula, during the winter months.
