I have been in the event industry for over 10 years now, and have enjoyed every part of it thus far! When in high school, Carmin Cermak (Carmin Events) took me under her wing and trained me in every aspect of event planning. From setup, serving, breakdown, and wedding prep, she made sure I knew all the phases! Her passion and joy for weddings, that she exposed me to through the years, helped me to grow and develop a love and excitement for wedding planning on my own.

While going to school for Business Management and  Event Management, I worked for a conference center catering as well as working for a popular restaurant in Grand Rapids, MI. This was a great experience and time in my life that showed me all areas of the hospitality industry. About age 22, I did the first wedding on my own. This was the moment that I realized weddings were my passion and the direction I wanted to go towards in my life.

As the independent owner of Steel & Lace Events, I specialize in full and partial event planning, event design, and month- of or day-of coordination. I have formed a career that I am passionate about and able to share with those I meet along the way. I love helping create a memorable day that will last a lifetime as couples build a new life together. It’s an honor to be a part of making those dreams come true and having fun through the process!

When I’m not planning weddings, I enjoy spending time with my husband and enjoying life in sunny San Diego!
