For 16 years, I have owned and operated a thriving freelance event
coordinating and decorating business, playing an integral role in the success of numerous collegiate, private industry, and
family focused events and projects. As a coordinator, I meet the logistical needs of each project, ensuring the project flows
smoothly from inception to completion. As an artistic creator, I execute my clients' vision with elegance and flair.
• Production: The
key to managing/coordinating a successful project or event is developing a solid set of production skills, which include resourcefulness,
intelligence, problem-solving abilities and a talent for honing in on details. Punctuality, reliability and integrity, have
been keys for operating this business.
• Aesthetics: Decorating
requires a great sense of personal aesthetics: I rely on my own respected and established style, adapting it to execute the
vision of each individual client. My innate talent for style and design helped me develop a great eye for composition, color,
décor, and graphics.
• Relationship Management:
Managing a crew and working with several tiers of clients requires tact: I have excellent relationship-building skills, including
active-listening skills, the ability to negotiate positive outcomes and a knack for working well with diverse people. I excel
at thinking on my feet and making quick, executive decisions that ensure all parties are satisfied.
• Stage and Set Design:
I have immense experience in stage dressing and decorating, prop research and procurement. I also possess a deep
knowledge of current décor and wardrobe trends, which are essential to stage and set design.
