As a Gemini, I love to stay busy and fuel my creativity. I find the beauty is in the details when organizing any event. I have been involved in the beauty and wedding industries for the past five years and continue to learn and research new ideas to provide the best perspective for every client. 

When I’m not planning weddings, my passion is creative writing and poetry. I spend my weekends with my two adorable dogs, or finding a concert, art show, or new adventure. As long as I can remember, I’ve had a notebook in my hand and love to explore the world through words and creativity. I love cooking, movies, glitter, shoes, and cupcakes. I’m a firm believer in positivity creating opportunity and making the most of life.

 A little about my background; I graduated SUNY purchase in 2012 with a Creative Writing Degree. I began working as the Head of Marketing for a bridal traveling hair and makeup company. It was the best of both worlds since I love skin care and makeup and was able to use my creative writing skills. It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the wedding industry and after assisting with Lauren learned wedding planning combined my love of talking to people, attention to detail, and creativity- a perfect fit! I recently completed a graduate program at University of Hartford with a Paralegal Studies certificate, which helped me start a career event planning for a multi-state law firm. I balance my creative passion of wedding planning with legal seminar planning which is all a Gemini could ever ask for!

Free time fun

guilty pleasure

secret talents

I love a long drive with my favorite playlist. There is something about the road in front of me, the windows down, and some Taking Back Sunday blasting through my speakers. I also love watching the sunrise after a night of no sleep, watching the world wake up. Small, quiet moments are what makes the world go round, if you ask me.

My parents are my heroes. Growing up, they always taught me that I can do anything and be anyone. My mom taught me how to be kind and humble but hold all my power in my heart and be ready to speak up when I need to. My dad taught me to never need anyone but myself. He taught me to never stop growing as a person even for one day but never ever, ever to grow up or take anything too seriously.

I don’t like free time. I get very restless! I always need to be working on a project. Sometimes to de-stress, I’ll clean my entire condo. If I need to get out I’ll take my dogs with my on a long walk. If I have a free weekend, I’ll drive to New York and spend time with my friends from college. I always like to fill up any free time!

Ugh. Shopping. Guilty because I spend so much. But I just love shopping. Clothes? Home décor? Tacos? Wine? You name it! There is just something about wandering around the mall that can be so relaxing!

It is always fun to tell people I used to be a figure skater in my youth! I am also a certified makeup artist and paralegal. Like I said, I like to fill up any free time with adventures!
