Partner, Event Planner

With an eye for detail and a passion for planning, I can help make your event planning process stress-free! My organized yet whimsical nature lends itself perfectly to helping you create magic in your celebrations. Having grown up with a summer home in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Asheville has always held a special place in my heart. Special enough that my husband and I decided to move here full-time 8 years ago. When I am not planning events I can be found gardening, practicing yoga, and spending time with my daughter!

Event Planner

After planning years of preschool lessons, I decided to take it a step further and use my strengths in event planning. With strong communication skills, a love for organization and an easy going personality, I can help make your perfect day a reality. I grew up surrounded by the mountains in Maryland but Asheville has quickly become home to me. If I’m not playing with children or planning I enjoy running, hiking, dancing and eating wonderful food around town.
