I'm also the Co-host of a multi-award-winning weekly podcast for couples planning weddings, wedding professionals, and event professionals. Our topics range from COVID-19 rescheduling to ceremonies and receptions and anything in between. Developed under unprecedented times of COVID-19, when people were "unconnected," it allows us to remain connected. Viewers learn the ins and outs of planning everything for their big day behind the Veil Podcast. The show airs live on Tuesdays at 2 PM ET on YouTube and is available on all the major podcast stations.

With more than 30+ years of experience, I'm a skilled and dedicated event-planning professional. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Behavior from Rollins College, Winter Park, Florida. In the past, I've worked with such groups as Nickelodeon & Universal Studios Grand Opening Gala, Give Kids the World Gala, Lockheed Martin, The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Tupperware, The House of Seagram, Paychex, Park Avenue Restaurant 25th Anniversary Gala, Taste of the Nation Orlando, Taste of Winter Park, and Festival of Lights Orlando.

I've received the designation as Certified Wedding Professional (CWP) from the Certified Wedding Planning Society, Certified Professional in Catering and Events (CPCE) from the National Association for Catering and Events, and All-Seated Certified Professional (now known as PRISMM), and Certified Timeline Genius, a Certification in Effective Communication Cornell University, and both a Certification in Tourism & the Hospitality Industry and Certification in Hospitality Law from the American Hotel & Motel Association.

I've served on the Winter Park Chamber boards, including the Commerce Tourism Board, Commerce Marketing Committee, and Commerce Park Ave Merchants Association. I've also held various roles with the National Association for Catering and Events (NACE). I serve as President Emeritus and Advisor of the NACE South Florida Chapter.

Fun facts: In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Mark, and our little fur-baby Lilly. I enjoy traveling, health and nutrition, food and wine, organization, event planning, international culture, music and dance, behavioral studies, and research.

My invitation expertise, etiquette, education, and knowledge will be a value-added resource to guide you through the process. Thus, the result will be a joyous and relaxing experience to focus on other event details to celebrate your special occasion.
