Congratulations on your engagement!

For a bit of background on me, I was born & raised in Calgary, Alberta, on the doorstep of the incredible Canadian Rocky Mountains. I have profound love for organization, a soft spot for beautiful stationery & a good to-do list, an eye for design & a love of fashion & travel (17 countries, 26 US states & counting!)

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Justice Studies & worked in the Criminal Justice system in Canada for 10 years & then became a Certified Wedding Coordinator & Consultant before moving to Houston in late 2014 with my husband, our dog Zoey and cat Adobe. 

In addition to event planning, I enjoy freelance writing and have been published on various sites, blogs and magazines.

I am the proud current President-Elect of the Houston Chapter of the International Live Events Association and the Vice President of the Association of Wedding Planners. Both organizations are a passionate volunteer commitment to advancing the special events industry here in Houston!
