Get to know me

I am 24 years old and I am a Texas girl born and raised! After growing up in Lockhart, TX, I traveled to Santa Fe, NM to pursue a Musical Theatre degree at the Santa Fe University Of Art and Design. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from SFUAD in 2017 and loved every minute of my time in Santa Fe! While I was in school, I performed in several plays and musicals on the Greer Garson main stage, while working several side jobs such as barista, singing waiter, and event coordinator.

I worked for a company helping coordinate and plan corporate events and fell in love with the world of event planning. It was the perfect combination of creativity, organization, and wonderful social interactions! After graduation, I joined Right as Rayne Events owned and operated by my best friend from college, Kinsey Sarian.

I joined RARE as the New Mexico branch runner and lead coordinator, and was in charge of all things New Mexico while Kinsey handled things in our Colorado branch. But my heart was calling me back to Texas!

Last August, my boyfriend Kai, and our adorable fur baby Percy packed up our life and moved back to Texas! Kinsey saw it as a great opportunity to expand her company and we opened a new branch here in Houston! I am having a blast exploring this city, and getting to know the other vendors in the area! We have already booked several weddings for our first season and I can’t wait to help other clients plan the event of their dreams!

When I am not meeting clients and shmoozing vendors, you can find me watching Netflix and snuggling my dog, or hitting up a karaoke bar to belt my heart out!

Who is your biggest Girl Crush and why?

Carrie Fisher. I love her. She was a fantastic actress and human. She never let any one take advantage of her and lived her life in an honest and raw way. She overcame so many obstacles in her life which I can relate to. Plus she was hilarious and has some of the best quotes ever! I mean any one who can claim they have been with Harrison Ford.... 🙌🏻😍

What is your Spirit Animal and why?

A fox. Besides it’s beautiful ginger fur...I relate to it’s ability to swiftly navigate through the world and using their cunning wit to see through difficult or unpredictable situations. Plus, I get a lot of work done at night as well, which parallels the fox’s nocturnal nature!

What is your favorite leisure spot, restaurant or gathering space in Houston?

Since we are so new to the area, I haven’t done a ton of exploring.. 😕 I have been to Agora several times and LOVE IT!

Why do you want to be a part of the Sesh Community?

Being new to the city, I am looking for an opportunity to make new friends and network with like minded ladies!

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the Sesh Community?

I can certainly help plan any events or meet ups that you would like help with! Other than that, I will just give my positive and fun personality! ;)

I am most interested in:

  • Collaboration

  • Friendship

  • Consulting from Others

  • Finding a Mentor

  • Networking

What are some small things that make your day better?

Coffee, dog snuggles, food and social interactions! I love meeting new people and hanging out in our gorgeous city!
