"tailored events especially for you"

I’ve always been a natural when it comes to organizing events, whether it’s for a small birthday party for friends or a large Private Corporate Event. Events are my passion and no detail is too small. I enjoy working with people who can give me a basic idea and let me run with it to make it bigger and better. There is nothing like seeing the smile of satisfaction on a client’s face on the day of their event. That is when you know you have made their dreams and visions come true. I am just getting started in this business professionally, but am looking forward to endless possibilities.

I have just completed the QC School of Event and Wedding Planning Course to be officially certified. I do have experience in various fields. Those fields include a background in Food Service, Catering, and Contract Administration.
Food Service/Catering
I have 4 years of experience in the field of Food Service and Catering. I have worked at the WSCTC in Seattle, WA as a Catering Coordinator. My responsibilities included working with clients, executing Catering Contracts, creating meal selections and client tastings. I have also worked as a Catering Manager. My responsibilities included taking Catering orders, creating artistic food displays, and table set-up.
Sr. Contract Administrator
For the last 11 years, I have worked as a Senior Contract Administrator. I am in charge of contracts, working with clients, and running all the Private Corporate Events from 20pp – 150pp. Some of these events include Christmas Parties, Golf Tournaments, Meetings, and Office BBQ’s or luncheons. Whether it’s planned or last minute, I am the “go-to” person. I will make it happen.
On the Side
Whenever possible I will work with friends and family on Private Events such as Baby Showers, Bachelorette and Birthday Parties, Holiday or Themed Parties, and Weddings. I have organized events as well as catered them.


I specialize in both small and large Private Events: these include but are not limited to Corporate Events, Themed Parties, Birthday and Bachelorette Parties, and other Personal Celebrations. My goal for each event, whether big or small, is to work with each client to make sure all their expectations are met and their visions become a reality. Every event should be unforgettable.
