Turning a Vision into Reality
I began my career in banquets both with venues & off site catering companies. I started from the bottom as a server and worked my way up to group sales management before deciding it was time to do it my way! I received my degree in Sports/Entertainment/Event Management from Johnson & Wales University followed by receiving my Hospitality & Tourism Management Certificate from Florida Atlantic University. In addition I also became a Certified Wedding Planner & certified in Wedding Design Fundamentals through the Bridal Society.
On a personal level, my family is everything! My husband and I got married back in 2015 followed by getting our dog, Castle, the following year. We also welcomed our son back in 2018 and our daughter just last year in 2021! In my free time, you'll find me on family outings, teaching dance, or just plain vedging! I'm a sucker for a good Rom-Com, have a very unhealthy Starbucks hot chocolate obsession and love country music!

Making Dreams Come True
I started my career in the world of events working with Max Catering & Events through their service department. I quickly turned this opportunity into an internship with their Event Managers. I received my degree in Hospitality & Tourism from Central Connecticut State University. I decided to join the Everlasting Affairs team back in 2020 as a Day-Of Assistant, amidst the global pandemic and all! My drive to succeed and attention to detail allowed me to fit in perfectly and turn into the permanent position I currently hold within EA. I love working with my clients to ensure their vision comes to life and that wedding or event they've been dreaming of, becomes their reality! I am also currently working on becoming a Certified Wedding Planner through the Bridal Society along with becoming certified in Wedding Design Fundamentals.
On the personal side, I love spending as much time as I can with family and friends whether it is out by the pool or hitting the ski slopes. I love country music and watching my niece and nephew continue to grow and achieve milestones.

A Perfectionist on Every Detail
I started off my career in the hospitality industry through hotels. I've worked with Radisson, Residence Inn, & Omni Providence in several different departments from front desk to night audit & accounting. I also received extensive training in banquets and fine dining which makes me extremely detail oriented when it comes to events. I graduated from Johnson & Wales University with a degree in Hotel & Lodging Management followed by obtaining (2) masters degrees from Southern New Hampshire University in Financial Investments & Accounting and Finance. I have a very OCD eye for the details and a passion in both the hospitality and finance industries.
In my day-to-day, I work with MassMutual and assist with Everlasting Affairs whenever needed. I also am serving on the board of the MoyaMoya Foundation Co.. As my wife stated above in her bio, our kids are everything to us (dog included). In my free time you'll find me running around with the kids, playing video games with friends, or as my wife put it; vedging. I love spending time with family and friends as much as life allows, challenging myself with a new venture, or out working on my golf game.
