Tell us about your business or the work you do.  I’m the owner of Hitched Events, which is a wedding planning company I started in 2011. We focus on upscale events with beautiful details. I also co-host a podcast for wedding industry entrepreneurs called This Week In Weddings. It’s been my passion project for more than 3 years now!

How long have you been a NACE member? On the board?   I’ve been a member of NACE since 2012 and have served on the board for 5 years (not consecutively).

What is your personal motto?  Life is too short to drink bad wine.

What is your guilty pleasure?  Bravo Television! If it’s trashy reality television, I’m in.

Which actor or actress would play you in the movie about your life? Kerry Washington. I have been told I’m the Olivia Pope of weddings before, which I consider a total compliment!

What does true leadership mean to you?  Leading by example, for sure. I’m definitely not one to shy away from rolling my sleeves up and doing the work that’s often not glamorous.

What is in the trunk of your car right now?  A seat cover that I can unroll and put over my backseats so my child (also known as my dog Deacon) doesn’t slobber or shed all over my car.
