Creating memorable events for any occasion.

I am new to the event and wedding planning business, but I am focused on providing high-quality service and customer satisfaction. I will be dedicated to making all of your dreams for your event or wedding come true. I will meet and try my best to exceed your expectations. Planning any event can take a lot of time out of your schedule and be very overwhelming. I am offering my services so that you don't have to worry about anything, and can leave the event in capable hands.

Graduated High School from Thomas Haney Secondary School in 2009 and Graduated from QC Event Planning in 2012. As I mentioned I am new to this business but I am a very organized and independent woman, and believe I can make every dream come true with hard work and dedication. I am very good at communicating with people and listen very well. When it comes to timelines for planning I am very on time and accurate, I do not like to be late, rushing around or go over budget. I am great at multitasking, am organized, detail oriented and can work with any number of people. My hours are very flexible, I can work all day or every day of the week. When I want to do something quickly and efficiently I do it, I do not waste time. I am a very positive person. Even if I am in a tough situation or feel upset I try not to show it because I need to be professional. Being a leader is a great asset and I believe I have that asset. Being creative is something I pride myself on. Coming up with ideas, even if people don't like them, I bring them to the table.
