Experience:

Over the last couple of years I had the honor of helping family members, friends, and my church put together a variety of events. I love to celebrate others!

In April 2010, I had the pleasure of being on the Lead Team for the planning of my Pastor’s Wife a Surprised Birthday party. My responsibility was to create invitation and programs for the event. I took my part serious even though it was a small part. I believe every position counts, so I worked hard on the creativity put into the invitations and the programs. The Pastor’s Wife was very surprised and appreciative of all the hard work that was put into the surprise.

In October 2009, I had the honor of being the director of the committee in planning my new Pastor’s Installation Service. I was the overseer of all the planning and approving the disbursement of funds. I also served as the onsite coordinator the day of the service to make sure the guest were made welcome and the service went on without error. The event was a success.

In July 2009, I had the honor of planning my cousin’s High School Graduation Open House. There was no real budget for this event, it was held in my sister’s back yard and it was Pot-Luck dinner in Honor of the Graduate. Family & friends gathers to share in this grate milestone and the graduate was very pleased with my work.

In March 2006, I had the honor of helping my best friend planning her wedding in a little less than 2 weeks. It was a nice small ceremony of about 25 guest and we pulled ceremony & reception off perfectly. The bride & groom were very pleased with the results.
