What makes your business successful/unique? Anything you take special attention to or pride in?
Successful, because I am passionate, knowledgeable and personable. Unique, no two days are ever the same!
I am proud of all of the events I have helped coordinate. Every event, corporate or social, large or small, I place special attention to all. Everyone is unique and their needs are all different.
The satisfaction I get when the event is executed, and clients are happy, just makes the job worthwhile.
Outside of running the business, what are some of your personal interests?
I love spending time with my family, entertaining, traveling, experiencing new things, and meeting new people. On my spare time I enjoy running. Running helps me disconnect, clear my mind and prepares me for the next task.
