My Story 

Perpetually happy and full of idiosyncrasies, I grew up the fourth of six children on a Pennsylvania 300-acre farm.  Heading south at the age of 17, I quickly fell in love with the laid back southern lifestyle and a Virginia gentleman. Forty years and 3 children later, I am living my southern happily ever-after.  And yes, I remain perpetually happy and full of idiosyncrasies.    

Why Events?

Calling myself an "event planner" came late in life, although truth be told, I've been planning something or other for as long as I can remember ~  and I've been told that I could effectively run a small country if I put my mind to it.  I'll pass on that, but I do love sitting across the table from someone and saying "What do you want to make happen?"   

I adore what this career provides me; primarily the most memorable and wonderful clientele.  And the opportunity to be part of what is worth celebrating in their lives.   I do so with gratitude, grit, and hopefully a bit of grace and purpose.  


Atlanta, GA is considered home but we have a great airport to any and everywhere.  And thanks to my wonder lust father, I adore a road trip.
