Allow Me to (re) Introduce Myself......

Hey loves! 

It has been awhile since my last post, and I have some exciting blogs coming up to share with you! Today, I'm keeping it light and fun by sharing a few fun facts about myself!

Five Fun Facts about Me! :

1. I was a professional dancer for years, and I even spent five years dancing aboard Royal Caribbean Cruise Line! 

2. I am the only leftie in my family, and my godmother ( who is also a leftie) taught me to write and tie my shoes! 

3. I am OBSESSED with Law and Order. If there is a marathon of old episodes on tv, you can guess where I'll be all day! 

4. I am a living organ donor- in 2011, I donated my kidney to my mother. I have since become an organ donor advocate for Gift of Hope and the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois. 

5. I am a bibliophile- I have about 75 books on my Kindle app, another 100 on my iBooks app and about 200 waiting to be purchased on Amazon!

My journey to becoming an Event Planner dates back to my childhood, assisting my mother with planning and executing parties at our home and for my dad’s fraternity. I was training to be a professional dancer at the time, so I never thought about being a “Party Planner”, it was just fun for me to help her. After a fabulous and exciting dance career that spanned 20 plus years, I began working as a dance instructor at Arthur Murray Dance Studio in downtown Chicago. Because of my excitement for our studio events and knack for organizing parties, I was soon promoted to Guest Director. This position allowed me to see that Marketing and Event Management was something I enjoyed, and it was then I realized this could be my next career move! I spent the next two years learning as much as I could about the Event Industry, including an internship with Desiree Moore Dent, Owner of Dejanae Events,as well as studying and becoming a Certified Wedding & Event Planner/Designer through Lovegevity’s Wedding Planning Institute. This is how I learned more about the business side of running your own business, which was invaluable information! During this time, I offered my services to family and friends for any event they may have been having to gain as much "real world" experience as possible. In May of 2013, I decided to get my business license and launch Events with Ambiance. It has truly been eye opening that I am now an entrepreneur, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! I am grateful to have family and friends support me, my company has truly become a Family Business!! I am blessed to surround myself with people who are just as passionate about my business as I am; for me, Event Planning is about more than just throwing a great party, it's about creating an unforgettable experience for my clients and their guests!
