I am a lover of life, people, and grand adventures! I have been told that I am down-to-earth, trustworthy, energetic, and fun. My passion for people, creating unforgettable experiences, and my strong desire to support others along their journey is what inspired me to create Rising Fern Events.
My event planning journey began almost a decade ago. Shortly after graduating in 2008 from the University of New Hampshire with a Bachelor’s degree in Recreation Management, I moved down to Asheville and began working as an outdoor adventure guide. I absolutely loved my job, but never lost sight of my childhood dream to become an event planner. My curiosity persisted over the next couple of years and in 2011, I became a Certified Special Event and Meeting Planner. In early 2012, I began working as an assistant with Asheville Event Company and as the bridal attendant at Claxton Farm.
Over the last 10 years, my experiences have developed a well-rounded knowledge and appreciation for all aspects of the event planning world. From being a venue consultant and catering coordinator in Colorado to working on a flower farm in Australia and landing one of my dream jobs as a wedding coordinator at The Farm, an award winning venue near Asheville. In the past 2.5 years alone, I have coordinated over 90 weddings for amazing clients. It is my goal to share my knowledge with you and support you based on your needs so that we can create an experience that brings overflowing joy, ease, and organization to your wedding day!
