About The Founder
I started my hospitality career over 35 years ago in the travel industry. For over 15 years, I successfully planned detailed, complex, and tailored domestic and international itineraries. These itineraries included airline, car, train, cruise, and even bus reservations, as well as hotel and resort accommodations, and a myriad of related tangential services.
Such extensive experience taught me the "ins and outs" of preparing complete individual travel arrangements for both personal and business travelers. My expertise in travel arrangements evolved into exclusively preparing successful meetings and events for private groups and leading corporations in the financial, entertainment, and medical fields. This has been my focus for the past 27 years.
I graduated with a BSBA in Marketing and Management & Organizational Behavior at the University of Missouri - St. Louis. I also earned an MBA in Marketing at the University of Phoenix and completed a certificate program at University of California – San Diego in Meeting Management and Special Event Planning.
Additionally, I proudly earned and maintain the designations of Certified Meetings Professional (CMP) issued by the Events Industry Council and Certified Meetings Manager (CMM) issued by Meeting Professionals International and the Global Business Travel Association.
I am a member of Meeting Professionals International, the leading industry organization. I was nominated for “Meeting Planner of the Year” twice and received the Lois K. Hauser award for volunteerism in 2017.
Well-traveled globally and well-connected, I am familiar with where to go and who to talk to about making sure clients get only the best services.
The name is my mission. Meetings and events are done with purposes in mind. My mission is to make sure clients’ meetings and events accomplish and exceed those purposes, which contribute to their success now and in the future. Simply stated, my mission – your Meetings and Events - Accomplished!
Utilizing a network of passionate, highly experienced, and well-educated professionals my focus is on managing meetings and events for office staff, sales teams, management, Board of Directors, VIPs, and anyone in between. I am proactively working to remain at the cutting edge of the industry to deliver high-quality services – from inception to results and even beyond.
I am part of a well-connected network of global vendors. I know what and where to find what you need, so you will always have a link to the best there is!
