Owner & Senior Consultant

I have always had a passion for wedding planning. I was 16 years old when I planned my first wedding for a group of 100 people. For the last 12 years I have been a part of the wedding & events industry in the San Juan Islands. The joy that I felt from everyone was infectious. After every event, I had a smile on my face because I knew I had been a part of something beautiful. It always feels like magic to help create memories that people would never forget.


Prior to purchasing Cloud 9 Events, I was working in corporate banking, focusing primarily on business coaching and managing a retail location. What it taught me was that I was ready to successfully manage a business and be my own boss. 


In November 2021, I purchased Cloud 9 Events from Kimaya, the founder of the business. She and I had worked countless events together, so it was a natural transition for me to buy Cloud 9 Events. I have been so lucky to have been mentored by her! Kimaya’s years of industry experience and the incredible reputation that she has built for Cloud 9 Events is an exciting launch pad for the next era of the business. I am incredibly grateful for the support and side by side training I have received through this transition. <3
