Tell me about yourself.
I grew up in a small town Portales, New Mexico out in the country, where my only neighbors were my sisters and so we grew up very close and still hold that relationship today.
I went to school at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico and transferred my junior year back home to Eastern New Mexico to finish up my degree
in Business Administration with a minor in Marketing.
How did you get started?
I got started in this wedding field with all of my friends getting married and having a love for planning my best friends wedding and also helping out a college friend get married, ever since then
I have had a love and passion for the wedding industry not thinking that I would now make a career out of it!
I started a year ago as an assistant wedding coordinator at a local venue here in Lubbock.
I gained so much knowledge from my manager at the time and still use many of her tricks today (like all the comfortable shoes you need for 12-16 hour days) 🙂
Why did you start this career path?
It’s something I have always been interested in but after getting into it I just fell in love with it!
I loved being a part of the brides big day and creating a relationships that I would never have with a complete stranger unless through this industry.
What is your favorite thing about your job?
I love getting to know the bride through the flowers.
Flowers are a HUGE part of the big day and for them to be expressed to show what type of bride they are through flowers is something very rewarding.
What set’s you apart from others?
I try to personalize and become the brides friend throughout her entire process, I know its a very stressful time and if I can take any of that from the bride,
I know its something that is appreciated in the long run, but the moment on a brides face when she first sees her bouquet is priceless.
What is something interesting about yourself that most people don’t know about?
I’ve been to Kenya Africa on a mission trip and can’t wait to go back to see the people that have left an impact on my life!
What do you like to do on your free time?
I enjoy running, traveling, and spending time with my family.
If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be & why?
I’m a kid at heart and can’t wait to go see all the characters that I grew up watching.
Unsweetened Green Tea but deep down I love me a good margarita!
Favorite type of music?
I like all music but I Love me some good Worship music!
CHRISTmas! I love Christmas and the true meaning behind it
