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. Thirty eight years and 3 children later, I am living my southern happily ever-after. And yes, I remain perpetually happy and full of idiosyncrasies.
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 swear, the conversation gives me goosebumps every time. I'm not out to conquer the Oscars or plan a royal wedding; I just love doing great events. Your event.
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.
