Hello, my name is Arlene Jones. I wanted to become a wedding planner because I wanted be a part of a couple's memories that they will keep forever. I knew wedding planning was what I should do, because I love to design and create, and I am also a very organized and detailed person. Wedding planning is exciting to me, because the same elements are necessary for every wedding, yet every wedding is so different.
I am currently a student at Thompson Rivers University as well as enrolled in Quality of Course Wedding Planning. At Thompson Rivers University, I am just finishing up my last year of an Event and Convention Management Diploma. A am also in my last unit for Quality of Course Wedding Planning, and hope to finish both my diplomas around the same time in May. I previously worked at Newlands Golf and Country Club as a banquet server, and this has given me great experience. I also planned an event for the Kamloops SPCA, as well as the Kamloops International Film Festival. I am looking forward to starting to plan weddings in September 2009.
