About 2 weeks ago, I received an email from Ashley at the Record Journal asking if I would be interested in being interviewed for their "At Work" segment. It would be an article in the Record Journal as well as a short video for their online viewers and social media. Normally, I don't like to be in front of the camera, but I thought this was an opportunity too good to pass up! I get to talk about doing what I love!
It needed to take place pretty quickly (it would be published the following Sunday), so Ashley and I set up a time for her to come to my office on Tuesday. She set up a video camera and we sat down to chat about everything I love doing! Take a look!
Thank you for this feature, Ashley! It was so fun to better explain what it is a Wedding Planner actually does. I hope it brought some insight to those considering hiring one!
About the Author
Thanks for stopping by. I'm so excited that you decided to learn more about me!
First and foremost, I am a wife and mother to 2 boys, Kyle and Mason. They're part of the reason that I continued to pursue my dream of being a business owner. Having the ability to make my own hours and still be present for them is invaluable, and an experience for which I will forever be indebted to my amazing husband.
As a kid, I was always organizing everything. I loved stationary and paper and pens and markers and journals and planners and anything else that allowed me to plan and organize. Trapper Keepers and Lisa Frank? Yes, PLEASE! As I got older, that love for organization became a love for planning, particularly fun things like events. I woke up one day with the thought, “Could I actually make a living doing this?”. I had gone to Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, CT for my Bachelor's Degree in Communications, so I had a little knowledge about business and how they worked. When the idea began to formulate more and more in my head, I decided to take my education even further and pursue a Master of Business Administration Degree. Right after I earned this degree, I had my first son, so the timing was perfect! I was able to be home with him during the week while my husband worked, and work at night and on the weekends, when most events took place!
More than 10 years later, I still love bringing the idea and concept of a wedding or event into reality. Each one plays out differently, and I love that! It keeps things fresh and exciting! I can't wait to hear from you and learn all about how I can help with your next event!
