Q.How long have you been working in the event industry?
A.I studied live event production & entertainment business in college, which was inspired by my love of live music. I started booking local concerts when I was 16 years old, worked as an audio technician after college, and then worked in event design and lighting for five years before I moved to Raleigh. I love the design side of events, which is why I have so much fun in showroom appointments!
Q.What book have you recently read that has had an impact on your life?
A.Three years ago, I read the book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” and went from being a clutterbug to a minimalist. Seriously, I got rid of TONS of stuff and never looked back! It made me feel lighter, think clearer, and feel deeper gratitude for everything I have. I donate everything that I no longer love or find useful and only keep what “sparks joy”. If you’re looking for a change I highly recommend reading it!
Q.What inspires you and motivates you to be your best?
A.I have a ridiculously cute one-year-old named Lilly! People told me that your whole heart opens up and fills with love when you become a mom, and they were absolutely right! She inspires me so much and motivates me every day. There’s nowhere I’d rather be than playing, reading, laughing and cuddling with my sweet little bird
Q.How do you spend your free time when you are not at work?
A.When I’m not at work helping planners, caterers and brides with their rentals, I love adventuring and finding new places! I’m all about spicy foods (especially Vietnamese, Thai, Mexican, sushi, and BBQ spots!), beautiful scenery, and fun things to do with my husband and our little love! I’d love some recommendations for favorite restaurants and toddler-friendly destinations
Q.Are you a Raleigh native?
A.I grew up in a beautiful rural town in New Jersey! I love the quiet moments, kayaking in the local reservoirs, and the small town feel of it all, but there are SO many more fun things to do here, and the weather’s so much warmer, so I’m thrilled to call Raleigh home
