I am a Chaos Coordinator in all parts of my life. Whether I am wrangling my kids or putting out fires onsite, I thrive on the chaos. 

This desire to follow the chaos led me to events in a not-so linear way. Having studied Psychology and Sociology in College, I was ready to embark on my next educational step, but stopped over in hospitality on my way and never left.  I made my way from the Front Desk to Sales in various hotels in the DMV area, earning my MBA in Marketing along the way, After having my first-born, I decided to follow my passion while putting my experience to work in a different way by moving over to client-side event planning. 

My hobbies - when I have time for them - are photography, reading, and of course travel. I was lucky enough to turn one of my hobbies into a profession when I joined Once Upon a Wish Travel in early 2021.

My Boys

When I'm not planning events or travel, I am usually planning for my family.

 

With three active boys (my 3 C's), I'm usually running from one activity or sport to another, or simply playing referee between them. Chase - 11, Colton - 8, and Callan - 6 keep me on my toes, but always end the hardest of days with a silly saying or a sweet snuggle.

I am lucky enough to have a husband who supports my travel and is willing to take on this chaos while I'm gone. 

As of 2021, my heading is not totally accurate, as I finally got my girl...in the form of an Olde English Bulldogge - Izzy. Together with my Frenchie Flash, they add a little excitement to my otherwise boring/quiet household (HA!)
