What made you interested in becoming a wedding planner? I loved planning my own wedding and took care of every detail. I always thought I would make a great wedding planner and would love it. I'm so excited that my dream has become a reality!
What is your background? My main area of expertise is corporate events. I planned training events for a medical device company for over 6 years and have planned many other corporate events throughout my career. I am so fortunate to have met Ashley and am honored to be a part of Simply Elegant!!
What do you like to do in your free time? I love spending time with my family. My husband Jim and I have 2 kids - Lauren is 9 and Maxwell is 4. Being a mom is the best thing ever! I really enjoy having conversations with my kids and getting their perspective on the world. They have a lot to say :-) We also have a dog and a cat - so our house is full of activity! I sell jewelry with Premier Designs and do home shows as often as possible. I also take dance classes every week. The ladies group that I am a part of does jazz and tap and we are in the dance studio's recital every summer! I have amazing friends and try to spend as much time with them as I can.
What are a few fun facts about you? I grew up in Marshall, MN - so I'm a small town girl at heart. I am VERY close to my family - my parents visit often - they are the best grandparents ever! My sister and her family live in California and I try to visit as often as possible (but it's never often enough)! I LOVE all types of music. My degree is in Veterinary Technology and I worked in the field for about 4 years before making the jump into the corporate world. I love to laugh and try to find humor in everything!! I am always taking pictures so I can capture special moments...that way those moments can live on forever. I love wine - especially red. I am interested in people and want to know their "story." I am very organized and I make a lot of lists...I like to check things off when I finish them. I try to always be "present" and enjoy each moment!!
