Why you enjoy party planning
In my late teens, my love for event planning was sparked when i helped out at neighborhood parties. I was involved in Prom prep at My high school (which presently is the school on the internet known as "The Best prom in america" and even has a book written about it and I was very involved in University of Maryland Events. I loved events so much that during College I interned/worked for The Lerner Corporation at Landover Mall for years, doing events such as Dessert Storm memorials, easter bunny/Santa visits, fashion shows and more. this then brought me After College to bloomingdale's, Rouse Corporation (Harborplace) and back to Lerner (White Flint Mall) running and developing corporate retail events. Soon after, In 1994, I opened Save the Date, llc events and promotions your way, the company started with an idea on a napkin. We continue to grow as my drive for business and dreams take me on a ride that I love beyond words can describe . IF I WASN'T AN EVENT PLANNER, I WOULD BE A MARKETING AND ADVERTISING DIRECTOR or in advertising, it's almost the same concept!
