Meet the makers
co-founder and event designer
When it comes to celebrations, I'm a perfectionist at heart. Always have been, always will be. I just can't help but be infatuated with all of the little details that come together to create a unique, glamorous, and unforgettable event. From the basic (helping you choose the perfect stationery to brand your event), to the elaborate (exploring every sequin color ever made!), to everything else that needs decided on during the ride, no detail will be left unexplored as I collaborate with you to produce the event of your dreams.
My passion is centered upon event styling and design. I'm ultimately a lover of thinking outside of the box in order to create an event unlike one any of your guests have ever attended before. I strive to personally get to know the party hosts in order to produce an event that reflects their unique personal style, while giving them the freedom to enjoy the overwhelming planning process. I also love to find one unique piece of decor (a vase or printed tablecloth for instance), and center an entire event around it!
Having independently planned birthday parties for children; engagement parties, showers, and weddings for friends; holiday celebrations for families; luncheons for sorority women of all ages; and my own week-long, dream wedding celebration for my hubby & I and all of our guests, my experience has no limitations. The realm of possibilities for any event has no boundaries, and it is my mission to help you achieve what others may view as impossible. Whether you need assistance coming up with your overall event vision, bringing your dream vision to life, or simply carrying out your vision on the day-of the event, the Wanderlust team and I will be dedicated to your event with a passion unlike any other!

My love of celebrations came naturally to me, at the ripe age of 16, when I started working weddings and events for a catering company. From the humbling beginnings to the hours of over-time, I learned every task including serving food, decorating, and even busting out the stain remover (and dance moves, when I had the chance!) I discovered quickly that this fast-paced industry was exactly what I thrived for. I enjoyed transforming spaces and “putting it all together” to make a vision come to life. After receiving numerous compliments, I decided to take a leap of faith and became a certified wedding coordinator with our floral gal, Sara. While having similar experience to event planning and decorating, who else to join in on this adventure but my fashionably talented sister, Samantha, who has an eye for all things chic and classy!
With years of operational management coupled with acute attention to detail, I take pride in being known as the “hustler.” From an initial meeting, perfecting a vision and theme, all the way to vendor management, I will work diligently with you from start to finish in your planning process. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride (in an ever-so-fancy 1958 Ford Thunderbird, if you wish!) I am an outgoing person who enjoys building a relationship with our clients and seek to exceed their expectations. With my creative personality and passion for entertainment I will work my hardest to make your every meeting and celebration effortless and trouble-free.

Admiring flowers has always been a pastime that brings great joy to me. From a very young age, I could be found playing in my grandfather’s garden, so it is no surprise that his green thumb made quite the impression on me. I have always had an interest in Mother Nature’s gorgeous little gifts and I take pride in arranging them in a way to enhance their natural beauty. From making arrangements using homegrown flowers in my mother’s backyard, to disassembling arrangements and adding my own unique touch, I simply can’t get enough of creating my own works of art. While flowers generate their own enjoyment by simply being, I hone in on every minute detail to make every arrangement fulfill its truest potential. I admire finding use for every bud to make the most with a modest budget.
Along with completing courses and workshops in floral design with local florists as well as a wedding coordinator course, I continually seek opportunities to enrich my skill-set and learn new techniques to bring a fresh point of view to my arranging. I am elated to finally be sharing my love of floral design with Wanderlust and to assist in making any event a masterpiece.
