Professional Event Planning, Consulting and Services.
People see good ideas eveyday, they just don't recognize them.
My philosophy in life is; 'Would you take financial advice from a penniless person?' Probably not. So don't do the same with your precious memories. Over the years I have enveloped a wide variety of education and experience within all facets of events.
There is no event too big or small. My services scope far beyond the event, I can assist you with pre and post event challenges, such as loosing that last ten pounds or writing those thank you notes. Corporations have hired me to plan social functions to suppress motivational challenges.
My experience and post secondary education encompasses many different areas of interest to aid in event planning as well as pre and post planning. So how can I help you? Having my ‘Fitness Knowledge Certification’ I can help you lose that last 10, 20 or 30 lbs for your big event. A certification in ‘Psychology’ will help me guide you through the stress process. Did you know that that the psychological aspect of seeing an event through to fruition can make you physiologically sick. Who wants to be sick on their honeymoon? I hold an ‘Associate Certificate in Mediation’, there is nothing quite like negotiating power when dealing with vendors. I am also a ‘Certified Makeup Artist’ and ‘Nail Technician’, I carry tips on makeup that professionals don’t tell you about and your mothers never knew. I hold a ‘Food Safe’ and ‘Serving it Right Licensee Certificate’; you never know if your bartender is going to show up or if your food temperatures are correct during an outdoor event.
At one point in my life I owned a restaurant and catered many events. Rule of thumb in all food service industries is that you eat with your eyes first. It will amaze you how you can create a small inexpensive (low food cost) event look like an extravagant affair using the right tools. I have emceed many events as people are generally shy about standing up and talking to a crowd, this experience I gained through speaking about drug and alcohol awareness to elementary and high school students.
My hobbies are Latin dancing; need some lessons for that first dance? And scrapbooking and card making, where I can offer some great assistance in the 'Do It Yourself' stationary department.
I have executed many internal corporate functions such as job fairs, BBQ’s, awards ceremonies, Christmas parties, seminars and training sessions. Some of my published work in writing includes corporate newsletters, short stories and fitness training manuals.
