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.

I reached out to Angela, while I was planning my own wedding. She took me under her wing as an intern, before bringing me on board her incredible team. I have loved every minute of working as an event planner so far, and I am so grateful for the opportunity Angela has given me. Putting my love of planning and organization, as well as my creativity, to work to bring together beautiful and special events for our clients has filled me with such joy. I love seeing the happiness our clients have at their events and hearing how much better they felt having us by their side.

The last year has been a crazy part of my story, but one that has brought me to exactly where I needed to be. I could not have gotten through it without Angela and A`vie Events. Nor could I be happier to show those around me that it’s possible to get through anything life brings your way, with faith in yourself and the right support. As I continue to build my life in Gainesville with my new husband and two stepchildren, I hope to have the chance to be there for you. I would love to be the support you need, as you create your story as well.
