Hello, my name is
How I started
My love for all things events started at a very young age when I always found myself assisting my mom in planning family vacations, upcoming holidays and family get togethers. Driven by the desire to plan, help wherever was needed, and always be in the action, led me to my interest of weddings when I was in college!
While I was in college pursing my strategic communications degree at the University of Missouri’s journalism school, my public relations classes led me to event planning. took a handful of classes about public relations. My A-type personality lit up in those classes thinking YES this is the industry for me! Through these classes, I learned all the different steps of what goes into a well-planned and smoothly ran event.
When I had started an internship with a wedding planner in Columbia, COVID quickly halted the events industry. This led me to finishing my senior year in Springfield, Missouri, where I met the most amazing wedding planner and began a new internship with Misty Willinger Events!
I was in awe of the planning process and how it can be a beautiful, sometimes stressful, creative time in designing a couple’s ideal wedding! I had the pleasure of working three plus years alongside Misty as her Associate Planner, and our team of event assistant rockstars. Through all my experience with Misty Willinger Events, I have gained invaluable knowledge of what it means to be your biggest supporter and copilot on this planning journey.

I am the owner and lead planner at Perfectly Planned Events Co. As a Missouri native who loves this area, I am based in KC and Midwest Missouri and have been in the events industry for 3+ years.
My passion for creativity has always stemmed from my youth, as I fell in love with journals, painting, stories, stationary and more! I found my passion in events as it's the perfect creative outlet with lots of organization involved.
My favorite part of an event day is seeing the plans come to life. Especially when it has been months in the planning and the design process. Seeing the faces of my couples on their special day, knowing they are creating lifelong memories, makes me smile as I know I have found my calling where my organized creativity can thrive!
My friends and family deeply inspire me, and you can always find me hanging out with my loved ones when I am not helping my couples build their wedding dreams. If I am not hanging with my people, you can find me cooking up a storm in the kitchen, enjoying farmers markets and new restaurants, practicing yoga and walking outside, soaking up lake days and often having FRIENDS or Mammia Mia on my TV!
