About Me

I started planning events in college with large scale concerts, galas, and benefits.  From there, I started my professional career in non-profit event management at the American Cancer Society producing state-wide endurance events, galas, and charity walks.  Having a non-profit background has given me the opportunity to master all aspects of what it takes to produce a perfect event from organization, budget management, marketing, to execution.
