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 Business Partner 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 fiance, Adam and our families (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 we love to go out to try new restaurants and bars. 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!
