Are you looking for an Event Coordinator with fun, creative and innovative ideas?
With over 10 years experience coordinating events, they truly are one of those things that just make my soul happy! From checklists, budgets, spreadsheets to coordinating the event on the day- i love every minute!
Using core philosophies, my events aim to:
Keep it local: Using local suppliers increases our local economy, ensuring profit for our region and creating a community of suppliers that have proven themselves to be reliable, innovative and provide quality goods and services.
Everyone is a VIP: Who doesn't love to feel like a VIP! Creating beautiful events where people can escape and immerse themselves in their event is a must-have! I love getting creative with décor such as balloon arches, mood lighting, displays, themes, food- creative events are an extension of my creativity and it filters out to guests.
Authenticity: One of the things I often hear about my events is the sense of community achieved whether it be a corporate, cultural or community event, this is something I strive for.
