Meet the team

I have been planning, organizing and executing events such as weddings and other social events since 2012. I started my journey planning events for family and friends because I have such a passion for it! I love being creative and meeting new people. After curating quite a few successful events the time felt right to finally make event planning and design my career!

My transition to event planning and design was a huge risk as I left a full time job that offered me a regular pay cheque, benefits and a pension! But I wasn’t happy. I knew in my soul I had to make a change and do something I was not only passionate about but was talented at. To ensure I am providing my clients the best quality possible I enrolled in Event Planning and Design School. I completed my certification and I am happy to say I’m an official International Wedding and Event Professional (IWEP).

I love my team and am so proud of each and every one of them. No matter who you work with at Above and Beyond, you can rest assured that our team has your back, from Engagement to the Main Event.
