I’ve always loved bringing people together, be it a holiday or a special event. The gathering of family and friends in celebration, perfectly paired food and drink, and stunning photography documenting all the best moments to look back on. After devoting my entire high school career to Music Education and planning on attending The University of Southern Maine for this degree, I felt my heart still belonged in something more hands on with a creative output. It was then that I decided to change my college major to focus on the Special Events industry. I attended Southern Maine Community College, earning my Associates Degree in Hospitality Management with a focus in Event Planning. Upon graduation I went to Augusta Maine’s Senator Inn and Spa where I worked at the hotel Front Desk, Cloud Nine’s Restaurant Manager, and as an Event Planner doing everything from small business meetings to 200 person weddings. I loved every aspect of this job, however the ever-changing schedule of an event planner was not conducive to the demands of my growing family. I sadly stepped down and began working at a childcare center where I spent 6 wonderful years taking care of children, as well as raising my own, while continuing my love for wedding planning on the side. I am overjoyed to say that I am now a full time independent Event Planner, doing what I love without sacrificing precious time with my husband and three children. I enjoy collaborating with other vendors alongside the client to breathe life into their vision, creating a beautiful event and heightened experience for you and your guests. I look forward to the opportunity to talk to you more about what you have in mind!
