I will plan your event with expertise and efficiency to save you time and money while you remain stress free to enjoy your celebration!

I am lifetime resident of the Southern Oregon Coast, residing in Coos Bay Oregon. I have been married to ”the love of my life” for a very long time. I have one daughter and two grandchildren.

I feel the best part of planning any event is the end result!

Working with the client to create the event of their dreams is so rewarding when the end result is exactly what they envisioned. Creating great memories is my passion.

I am a graduate of Marshfield High School, Southwestern Oregon Community College and most recently QC School for Event and Wedding Planning where I received Certification as an International Wedding and Event Planner. I am also an Ordained Christian Minister with an established congregation in Coos Bay.

As a member of Zonta Club of the Coos Bay Area, Homebuilder’s Association of Southwestern Oregon and Coos County of Realtors, I have played a key part in planning large fundraising events and trade shows over the past several years.

On the corporate side of my career in the financial industry, I have been involved in planning and implementing training seminars and corporate parties. I have also been involved in organizing charity events such as the March of Dimes Walk for Babies and the American Cancer Society’s annual Walk for Life.
