What is your typical day like?
Generally my day starts around 7am. The first thing I do in the morning is to scroll social media, and use Planoly to schedule a post in the evening if I know I am going to be in a late meeting.
I have a home office, but my
My day generally ends by
How did you get started in the industry?
I started in the event industry at the age of 12. I worked as a banquet server and eventually worked my way up to event venue coordinator. I started my own business in January 2018 when I saw a gap in my market.
I originally went to school and graduated from Red River College with a counseling degree. In 2016, I decided to take the WPICC course, and I was hooked instantly and saw the opportunities available to me in my market. I have always had a passion to work with engaged couples on their special days. When I graduated with my counseling degree, the fit just didn’t seem right. I wasn’t as happy as when I was planning an event!
What inspires you?
I am inspired by nature. I love spending time outside, going camping, lying under the stars, or walking on a beach. I gain valuable clarity during these moments in nature. I am also a huge sucker for scrolling inspirational wedding posts on Instagram for hours, no joke.
I spend the majority of my day listening to podcasts. When I hear other boss babes talking about their careers, struggles, and accomplishments, I just want to head over to my computer and create some magic!
What are your favorite online resources for your business?
I also interact in a few different Facebook groups with local creatives which are extremely helpful and inspiring.
Aside from wedding and event planning, how do you spend your time?
I love to vacation. This past year on a week-long trip to Mexico, I accomplished so many business related tasks, and created content for months out of pure inspiration.
When I am not vacationing with my family, I love to head out to the cabin for a weekend, or curl up on my couch with comfy PJ’s and a good book.
