Hometown: Waterbury, Connecticut
Degrees/Certifications: Event Planning Certification, AA Hospitality Management
Catering Background: When planning my own wedding I found my passion! I enjoyed the planning process so much that I wanted to make it into a career. I got my feet wet in the catering field planning memorable events at a catering hall in Monroe, Connecticut. Now, I am soaking up the sun in Florida where I have the pleasure of planning a variety of exciting and enriching events for Woodfield members and guests.

Party Planning Words of Wisdom: The smallest detail can leave the largest lasting impression.
