How Does Your Work Enable You to Connect to and Fulfill Your Life Purpose/Passion?
Planning is my super-power and I love helping people to plan their own meaningful events so their personal touch shines through. When I am working with my clients I am building relationships with them, and I find that fulfilling. The satisfaction of helping people to achieve things they couldn’t do on their own is awesome motivation.
People should get to plan a truly memorable celebration and not have to sacrifice their own sanity and peace of mind in the process.
Who Is Your Ideal Client and Why?
She is a smart, capable woman who has a full plate to balance everyday. She juggles all the balls expertly (even the curve balls), but she also knows she is not an expert at everything.
She comes to MAXevent for help because she doesn’t want to chance missing the finer details. She will feel confident she is making sounds decisions without losing valuable time spinning her wheels.
She walks confidently into her event day with excitement and anticipation, knowing this party will be everything she wanted it to be and more!
What Unique Offerings Do You Provide?
I offer event planning consultation packages for people who want to plan larger-scale social events (think milestone birthday or anniversary, retirement, celebration of life, company holiday party). We plan with you, not for you!
When clients work with us they are able to keep their personal stamp on their celebration with the confidence and expertise of having a certified professional event planner in their back pocket.
When you want to plan a party and don’t quite know how to get from soup to nuts, but also know you do not want to hand this one over to an event planner, MAXevent is the service for you!
Who Was Your Role Model Growing Up? How Did That Person’s Actions Impact You?
I always looked up to my step-mom because she was a leader of her time for women in STEM. She approached everyday with positivity and purpose. She blazed trails and celebrated life, family, and womankind. She was there for me throughout my early life with many lessons, both tough and inspiring. She battled breast cancer like a true warrior, never giving up until she faced the last moments of her life. She was 54 years old.
