Licensed and Professional Wedding + Event Planner
When you love what you do, it doesn't really feel like a job – and I LOVE what I do. I don’t even think the word love covers how much I adore this job. After launching Event Planning by Annie in early 2021, I immediately fell in love with this industry and I take so much pride in my work. Ever since I was little, I’ve always had passion for organizing and planning. Not only do I believe that every event deserves to be spectacular, but every event should be unique to YOU. I love throwing little details into events that represent my clients. What they love, who they love, their family, their pets, their passions, everything.
I'll admit, I'm a bit of a workaholic. But when I'm not working, I love to travel (I've been to 18 countries!), walk my dogs, and spend time with my husband.
I started working in the hospitality/customer service industry over 10 years ago. I graduated the University of Nevada, Reno with a major in communication, and a double minor in sociology and cultural anthropology. During my time at the University, I had the opportunity to learn all about how people work, as well as various cultures, interpersonal skills, and conflict negotiation. I am also a trained mediator! I believe that my work and educational background really helps me negotiate for my clients, respect and understand a wide variety of cultures and traditions, keep the peace between everyone involved in the event process, and combine all of these skills together to create your perfect event!
After college, I decided to enroll in wedding & event planning school to learn the basics of what goes into pulling off an event. This education allowed me to hit the ground running in this industry. I have since gained many valuable connections with industry-leading professionals, vendors and venues. I work tirelessly to guarantee my clients' events will be filled with unforgettable moments to create memories that will last a lifetime!
