I am a certified Event and Wedding Planner – owner of the company “Dreams Do Come True” located in Chesterville, Ontario (just South of the city of Ottawa, Canada), and serving people in the Ottawa, Kingston, Cornwall triangle. I love planning and organizing social events, and my flair for colour and fabric to create any desired mood is an important element of my expertise.

I grew up in London, England, emigrating to Canada at the age of 22. I got my start in event planning 15 years ago while working for a major Ottawa law firm as the Administrative Assistant to the Managing Director. He liked parties – so guess who had to arrange them and make sure they succeeded in grand fashion. As time went on I moved my focus and my career from the law firm to my own business so that my obvious talents in the area of design and planning could flourish.
