I was born and raised in Minnesota. I always have been an overachiever and perfectionist, and after nearly 29 years, I’m still not sure if these are good traits or bad. I graduated from high school my junior year with honors and immediately started working towards my Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice with an emphasis on Adolescent Psychology which I (again) graduated from a year early.
I have planned nearly 200 weddings over the years. Some big. Some small. All amazing! Some with unlimited budgets, but most with strict ones. I have coordinated weddings in mansions, event centers, boats, trains, barns, nightclubs and hotels. I even managed to pull together a wedding in less then 30 days. I have dealt with tornados, fires and even a car accident the night before a wedding. I've learned a lot over the years like "don't sweat the small stuff" and the true meaning of "everything happens for a reason".
My objectives are clear – making each and every one of my clients happy, calm, and fulfilled. I am not just a "wedding planner", I am a friend, a sound board, a negotiator, a financial adviser, a mediator, a therapist and even in some instances, a punching bag. I remain calm when everything around me is in a tailspin. I am organized and professional as well as fun and carefree. My excellence really shows through the dozens of awards and recognitions I have received.
