Angela Renick

Owner/Executive Planner

It is a unique and exciting opportunity to own this event planning business. Even though I have been planning events for over 25 years, I still get a thrill from everyone. 

Alexandra Lawson

Lead Planner

My journey into Event Planning with A`vie Events was a little different than most. I am a Registered Nurse, and I worked for over five years in the Cardiac ICU and PACU at UF Health Hospital. After a car accident in 2017, I was unable to return to nursing full-time, and I started to think about what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I had to have a plan, of course! After a lot of careful consideration and encouragement from my family and friends, I decided to see if there was a future for me in Event Planning. It was something I always loved to do for friends and something I had considered when I first started college, before I pursued a career in nursing.

Harley Miller

Lead Coordinator

My name is Harley and I’m a student at the University of Florida majoring in Tourism, Events, and Recreation Management with a specialization in Event Management. My entire life I have loved planning and organizing. I really love being able to be a part of so many magical days and seeing all the hard work that is put into each and every event come to fruition.

Jessica Leonard

Lead Coordinator

I have wanted to be an event planner since I was a little girl. I love the idea of celebrating life and adding to people’s life by being involved in their event. I received my Masters of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Florida.



My name is Casey, and I graduated from the University of Florida in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism, specializing in Event Management. I have had the amazing opportunity to work in a wide range of events across the industry, including corporate events, weddings, and academic conferences.



Born in South Florida but have been in Gainesville since I was 5 years old, so I guess that makes Gainesville my home. I am an avid Gator football fan. I met Angela 15 years ago and have helped with A`vie on and off throughout the years.
