About Amanda

I thrive on relationships and creating connections with people. My passion has shifted from big corporate events to weddings, fundraisers, and smaller events. Less commercial. More personal.

Having grown up in a beach town on Lake Michigan whose primary economy is travel, tourism, and hospitality I lived and breathed the tourism industry. I pursued a Bachelors degree from Grand Valley State University in Hospitality and Tourism Management which led to a job in Southern California as a Corporate Meeting Planner for one of the largest private companies in America. I earned the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) certification in 2010. I eventually moved back to the Midwest for a professional opportunity to help launch a collaborative design hub in Grand Rapids, MI.

In 2012, I stepped away from event planning and project management to follow the love of my life (so sappy, I know) back to the West Coast and to start a family. I dabbled in event planning through volunteer work and an occasional wedding here and there. And, in 2018, when my babies weren’t babies anymore, it was time to jump back in to the industry.

Thriving under pressure, anticipating needs, dealing with change, preventing chaos, and solving mishaps are all in day’s work. Creating and executing a memorable, successful event, your event, is my mission.

Our family lives in Ridgefield, WA. My husband and I are raising two amazing “all boy” boys, a 90lb lab mix, and a very “catty” cat. Life changed in 2020 and we became a homeschooling family. When I’m not event planning or educating our boys I’m being their chauffeur so they can live their best lives, cheering them on at all their sporting events, organizing my cooking club, participating in “hot tub book club”, BSF, volunteering at our church, or adventuring around the PNW.

I’d be delighted and honored to meet and work with you to create your next outstanding event.
