This Richmond, VA native was graced with a business spirit from youth. Creating and drawing pictures for classmates in 6th grade to help buy snacks after school sparked my calling. I enjoyed the look on my friends faces after handing them one of my custom creations to hang in their locker. Since then I've exuded a passion for personal connections with business relationships.

Over the years, I developed organization and leadership skills while employed at the city's top companies like, Capital One, Verizon & Bank of America just to name a few. Somewhere in the midst of the hard work I desired to have more of a direct impact and the customized feeling for helping one individual at a time. During my search for a since of belonging then, I decided to use all the knowledge I gained from the major corps to step out on my own. In 2002, I partnered with a friend on a restaurant venture in Shockoe Bottom, moved the location to Old Manchester, then converted from dine-in to catering in 2008, to fit the demand of our patrons.

An array of opportunities came from that time frame, I've planned events, hosted casting calls, job fairs, directed celebrity interviews, video shoots, birthday parties and planned weddings! Later, I joined forces with Westin Richmond Hotel which was the perfect platform for me to form a rich and detailed understanding of concierge service while managing a team of awesome employees. By utilizing my resources I have been able to bridge the communication gap between many small businesses by promoting and networking. 

Now, strengthening the lives of my two teenage children is my #1 priority. I have instilled in them the value of consideration, integrity, determination, love and respect. Which are the same things that drive me to help others grow professionally, coupled with a personal conviction of life-long learning. 

I'm excited to manage an extraordinary team and provide exceptional service all while creating lasting memories for you!
