Born and raised in the Madison area, I'm a Wisconsin girl through and through. And, I love it!  Deerfield gives me the best of both worlds: close to the excitement and vibrance of Madison, but far enough away for me to enjoy the quiet country roads of a small town. 

I earned my degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management from The University of Wisconsin-Stout.  Right out of college, I jumped into the wedding scene as a wedding coordinator for a country club in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.  I soon realized that I didn't just love weddings - I loved the entire wedding planning experience: meeting with couples and learning about their love story, helping them to create a vision unique to them, and seeing how everything comes to life on the big day.  It is the most fulfilling feeling to see my couples' hearts so happy, and to share in the most important day of their lives with each other, family and friends. Overall, I have 15+ years of experience planning weddings and celebrations across Wisconsin. That's 15 years of cherished memories and relationships with those couples I have the honor of working with.  

When I am not event planning, you'll find me out and about with my two amazing children, at a flea market with Brian looking for treasures for our rental portfolio and home, or sitting by a bonfire looking up at the stars (with a Tito's cocktail and s'mores in hand, of course).  Tickets to a sporting event or country concert? I'm there!
