WHO WE ARE
"The most successful event is one that achieves your goals and exceeds your expectations"
Everlasting Affairs was born out of a driving passion for the event industry and the ability to mold our clients dreams into reality. Since our inception, we’ve committed ourselves to creating impactful and one of a kind experiences for our clients and their guests, no matter the size of the event.
Our team strives to meet and exceed the needs of each and every one of our clients. This is because we understand the importance of working with (not just for) our clients in order to make their events unforgettable, forging memories that last long after the last guest leaves.
THE TEAM AT EVERLASTING AFFAIRS
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!
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 have also become a Certified Wedding Planner & Certified in Wedding Design Fundamentals through the Bridal Society.
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.
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.
LEAD DAY-OF ASSISTANT
Joshua began with EA at the very beginning. He has assisted in both marketing and event execution within EA and is currently the most senior Day-Of Assistant. He received his degree from Johnson & Wales University in Business Management and currently works along side Wesley at MassMutual. He has developed a passion for the events industry and it really shines on event day! Josh loves golfing, cooking, and being surrounded by friends and family; along with video games of course.
Jenna joined our team in early 2022 and is very eager to learn and dive in! She is a recent graduate of the University of New Hampshire, earning a Bachelor's Degree in Program and Event Management with a minor in Business Administration. She has past experience in Event Marketing and Social Media as she completed her undergraduate internship while studying at UNH. When not working, Jenna enjoys spending time with family, hiking New Hampshire's 4000 footers, and baking cake pops!
Abby joined our team in early 2022 and is very excited! She graduated this spring from the University of Connecticut with a Bachelor's in Communications where she grew a passion for working with others and a strong interest in events planning. She also has experience working in banquet service! Outside of work, she loves to go the beach, play tennis, and binge watching reality TV.
Colleen joined our team late 2022 and is a lifelong student. Always looking to learn. She's been practicing American Sign Language for over ten years and use her skills on a weekly basis. She tied the knot this past August and her favorite things to do are to go out to a movie or to spend the day with her mom. Colleen fell in love with planning her own wedding and can’t wait to continue the process for many more brides in the future.
Samantha joined our team in early 2022 and has thoroughly enjoyed it! Samantha comes from an early childhood background and is a teacher of 2-4 year olds day to day. She is also a survivor of MoyaMoya Disease and was the inspiration behind the creation of the MoyaMoya Foundation. When not teaching or working with us, you can find her planning her wedding which will take place in 2023, watching Harry Potter or spending time with family.
