I am so excited you are here! I know you have many choices (and great options) for event coordinators and I appreciate you taking time to learn about Gatherings for Good and how we can help you create beautiful, memorable events while supporting our mission to give back to charitable causes! This business is special to me because it's taken a lot for me personally and professionally to get to this point in my career. To take a leap of faith and start this journey is huge! But I know this is my passion and my true calling in life and now I want to share that with you. I am so grateful for all the support and encouragement I have received over the years from friends, colleagues and mentors who have spent time getting to know me and who I have learned so much from. It's something I will always treasure.
Planning an event takes time, creativity, organization, attention to detail, patience and flexibility. As your chosen event planner, I will promise to take the time to listen to your needs, create a plan that is unique to you and your style, organize each detail to a tee, be patient while we work to put all the pieces together and be flexible when things change (as they often do). I truly get so much joy from seeing someone's else's vision or dream come true. I would be extremely honored to have the opportunity to work with you and make your dreams come true!
And now, some things to know about me!
Coffee, chocolate, the smell of lavender, any kind of rose, watching late night TV, sleeping in, a good book and the sound of my English bulldog snoring while she sleeps. (Sounds weird, but it's actually soothing)!
I am engaged to a wonderful man and we are planning our dream wedding for 2015 here in Santa Barbara! We love to travel and go on fun adventures together visiting new places! Here are a few photos from a recent trip to England, where he is from. I learned so many important things like the proper way to make tea, (in a kettle), that it doesn't rain as much as people might think and the most important of all - they have amazing chocolate!
