My Philosophy

Whether you're planning a wedding or conference, each event is tailored to you and each experience will be executed beyond your expectation.

My Story

My Story

I've had the privilege of planning of events ranging from weddings on the beaches of Maui to 4,500 attendee city-wide conferences.

With my event expertise and my positive get stuff done attitude, I can plan any event you need.

My event planning career started almost 15 years ago in Orange County where I grew up. While getting my Bachelor's in Psychology from UC Irvine, I started interning at the Down Syndrome Association of Orange County where I started planning their events. My passion for planning events sparked there! After graduation, I moved to San Diego and worked at Scripps planning medical conferences. After a calling to move to Hawaii, I started working as a wedding planner at the Grand Wailea Resort on Maui, then moved to Oahu and planned fundraising events at a museum. With family still living in Southern California, I moved back to San Diego and became a wedding planner again for a private wedding estate in San Marcos. Looking for a bigger challenge I went back to being a conference planner and planned one of my largest events of my career of almost 4,500 people. To round out my event experience, I became a meeting manager working with pharmaceutical companies and international organizations planning meetings and events across the US and internationally.

I'm always looking to challenge myself and evolve my event planning skills. In 2015 I received my CMP (Certified Meeting Professional) certification and looking to pursue my Master's In Meeting and Event Management from SDSU. I enjoy traveling, dancing, spending time with my friends and family in Temecula, and living for new adventures in life!
