Providing exceptional services for exceptional events.
Born and raised in New York's Hudson Valley in a big, Italian family, I always look forward to throwing a great party! Whether it be a large, traditional Catholic Christmas Eve feast, a small, quaint get-together for old friends to catch up, or a big, beautiful wedding, I have always had an knack for understanding my client and an eye to provide bespoke experiences. After working in accounting for several years, I decided to focus on my true passion of event planning. I take a very personal approach to working with my clients and usually feel as though my already large family continues to grow!
I receivied my MS in Accounting from St. John's University in Queens, NY, earned my CPA license and worked as a Big Four auditor and senior accountant for six years. I also have been a Volunteer Wish Granter with the Make-A-Wish Foundation for the past four years and counting, where I get to meet some AMAZING kids and their families, help parents fill out paperwork, work with kids to help them determine their heart's one true wish, and plan their wish parties!
After moving from NY to NC in 2013, planning my own wedding in 2016, and through my work with Make-A-Wish, I finally gave in to my heart's desires and admitted that accounting was not for me - event and wedding planning is! I am currently in the process of earning my International Event and Wedding Planning Professional (IEWP) certification from the QC Career School.
I truly believe that no event can be too big to plan or too small not to have. I love getting to know my clients on a personal level; the better relationship we can form, the more I can do to make your heart's desires come to life!
