Creating The Essence of Aloha In Every Detail

I would have to say that I am a very dedicated individual who loves to see individuals be happy and grow. I have a lot of personality and I need to have a career that allows me to be me. I would love to focus that dedication in event planning and coordinating because seeing you smile makes me smile!

I am originally from Hawaii and raised Midwestern in a small town called Rantoul, Illinois. I went to College in Chicago for my BA in TV Production and moved to LA to peruse my career in TV and Film. Being in LA made me realize that I want to do something that will enlighten individuals and I can be myself. Ever since I was young, I loved getting people together for little things and loved seeing the happiness it brought to their faces. I think as I got older, I came to realize that I don't want a career where I have to change who I am to be a part of the Entertainment Industry. I need a career where I can be myself, work with people and enjoy seeing the benefits of being an Event Planner. Happiness is everything to me and if I can do that then I have done my job.
