I am a true Raleigh native having been born and raised right here in the City of Oaks. I didn’t travel far for college and graduated from UNC in the fall of 2008 (go Heels!). In my early career I was a Catering Sales Manager for some local venues and the Convention Center downtown. Eventually the urge to leave Raleigh became very strong and I moved up to NYC in 2011 to pursue my dreams of living there. I worked in catering for about a year in the city before transitioning into a role in Human Resources at a beauty e-commerce start-up. While NYC will always have a piece of my heart, I was ready to move back to Raleigh in late 2014 in order to be closer to family and friends. My current full time job is working as a Human Resources Specialist for a digital marketing company in RTP.
While I do HR by day, my passion for weddings has always been a huge part of who I am. When I was 4 years old I told my parents that I wanted to be a “bride” when I grew up. My first two internships while in school were working with local wedding planners and vendors. To say that I’ve always loved everything about weddings would be a total understatement! My favorite part of a wedding is when the groom gets to see his bride walk down the aisle – it will bring me to tears every time.
In my free time I love to spend time with my family (I have the most adorable niece and nephew ever), cook, read and spend as much time at the beach as possible. I would also consider myself a major foodie and I love to go out to try new restaurants and bars with my boyfriend, Adam. I’m a big football fan and spend every Sunday in the fall watching and rooting for the Broncos (and now the Giants too).
I am thrilled to be working with the C and D team and look forward to being a part of your dream wedding!
