I’ve always been artistically inclined and a creative thinker/visionary. I am very hands-on and I enjoy the organizational aspects of planning as well as the glamorous side, such as the decoration and execution of an event. I place heavy emphasis on ensuring things go off without a hitch by meticulously planning out details and following up with vendors. Seeing my client’s reactions makes what I do very rewarding and brings me much satisfaction!
I’m very ambitious, and I have great people/interpersonal skills. I have taken several languages at the University of Toronto; these languages include courses in French, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian. Communication is very important to me and I love learning new things. My aptitude in languages is due to my fascination in understanding my clients and being able to help people. I enjoy listening to and having a conversation with different types of people, from different walks of life, and I take the time to understand my clients so that I can be successful in meeting their every need to the best of my abilities.
I always go that extra mile in everything I do. My experience in this field is still fresh which I believe is an asset to potential clients due to my innovative thinking and flexibility I am able to take a vision to a whole new level specific to their needs. My International Wedding and Event Planning Certification also makes me more than qualified to provide clients with a professional and quality service ahead of some other firms and individuals offering a similar service. I have however, planned smaller parties and gatherings within the scope of my own family and friends events. In addition to a Christmas party and other smaller events in the corporate world through acting as a member of Bank of Montreal’s Automotive Department Social Committee; events include fundraisers (raffles) and holiday/ year-round activities that I was able to plan collectively. All events planned were executed successfully.

All event details would be coordinated by myself right up to the day before it takes place ensuring everything will goes without a hitch.
Partial Services… If you’ve already started planning and/or you feel that it is taking up too much of your precious time, I am prepared to step in and provide you with the help you need.
