Keeping the vision alive & on track
When I was 16 years old my father earned a work trip at the Hyatt Regency in Maui, Hawaii. It had just opened and we were one of the first groups to stay there. God has blessed me with the gift of gab, so I talked with anyone who worked there that would talk with me. Eventually I made friends with the General Manager of the hotel, and he showed me the back of the house and it’s operations. I was smitten with everything in the hotel, but what really sealed the deal for me was when he showed me the huge empty ballroom. All I could think about was all of the possibilities of what could be done in and with that room. At that moment my fate was sealed, and when I returned home from that trip I knew I wanted to be part of that life. I knew I wanted to be of service, I wanted to think outside the box, and that the sky was the limit.
I started as a dishwasher (my first night working as a dishwasher was a different story, but let's just say that it didn’t scare me away) and worked my way up through the restaurant and hotel industries, while receiving my degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management. After 8 years in the hotel industry and reaching Director of Sales at the age of 29, I decided it was time to start my own company. I’ve now been in the hospitality/service and event side of coordinating for over 40 years.
God has gifted me with a heart of service and compassion. Truth be told it has been a blessing and a curse in some ways, but God continues to call me to love, serve and to trust Him and so I continue with joy! I feel peace in my soul knowing that I am working for his purpose and not my own.
Regardless of if I am working on a wedding, party, celebration of life, or doing a full cleaning out, you can expect professional service with empathy, compassion, and fair pricing.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband Terry and our sons, my mom, our family and friends. We like to do projects, go boating, go to the beach, go to concerts, listen to music, go to church, or volunteer. But my favorite thing to do is share how amazing God is and all that He has done for me and my family, with whoever wants to listen. Our youngest son once said to me, "Mom, if you were to publish your journals people would know God was real." My goal is to show God’s realness through my service to others and everything I do.
