I have been in the event and wedding industry my entire career. I grew up in catering and began as a multi-location retailer and became a wedding industry mentor. After pioneering a one-stop shopping wedding concept which combined storefronts and in-home service (1000 weddings annually and high volume invitation sales), I eventually was involved in the ownership of a photography studio, entertainment company and limousine company.
I wrote two books for the industry, “The Wedding Expert’s Guide To Sales and Marketing” and “The Invitation Business Report” I have been a contributor to industry platforms and have led numerous seminars including National Stationery Show 2011, 2012, 2017, Wedding MBA 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2019 and WeddingWire World 2016. I also produced two wedding industry educational events with multiple speakers. I recently have written for Vows Magazine, Stationery Trends Magazine & Mobile Beat and participated in numerous webinars and podcasts during COVID.
