Education / Certification

I am a Certified Wedding Consultant (CWC). I attended The San Francisco State University, College of Extended Learning. I obtained my certification in 2002 and started allure right away.

In addition to coordinating weddings, I teach a Wedding Planning Business Course at my alma mater. The San Francisco State University, College of Extended Learning.  

Experience

I have been working in the Events Industry for over 18 years.

At 16 years old, I was immersed in the family business assisting my father in running his limousine service after school and weekends.

I worked in a handful of hotels in the San Francisco Bay Area in various capacities including Assistant to the General Manager, Sales, Marketing and Convention Services.

During the dot-com boom in San Francisco, I worked as an Executive Assistant to the President and then as Facilities Manager where I planned events and after a merger facilitated the move of 500+ employees to a larger office building.

Tid Bits

I have 2 children. Santiago is 10 and he’s obsessed with Minecraft. Francesca is 8 and she’s obsessed with creating art.

I am a Certified Yoga Instructor. It's a good counter-balance to being a Wedding Consultant.

I’m a Sagittarius. If Astrology is important to you, then that’s a useful piece of info.

I studied Musical Theatre and acting for quite a few years when I was younger. I always thought I would be a famous singer and actress when I grew up. There’s still time!
