FAMILY:  My husband and I have a blended family with one son and two daughters.

EDUCATION: I have an associate’s degree in arts in business management from Northern Virginia Community College in Springfield and an associate’s degree in arts in marketing from Prince Georges Community College in Largo, Md.

GETTING STARTED: I never dreamed of being a wedding planner. I was content as a management analyst for the federal government. However, one of my friends asked me to be her maid of honor, and I accepted. Since my friend didn’t enjoy the work of the wedding, I took over the tasks and let her enjoy being the bride-to-be. Her wedding was perfect, and she told everyone that it was because of me. Because of her glowing testimonial, I had people approach me about doing their wedding. I learned as much as I could about weddings while maintaining my full-time job and continued to help couples plan their dream weddings. After a few years of freelancing, I realized that I loved wedding planning way more than I did my government position. In 1991, I left my job and started my business without any regrets.
