ABOUT

You may be asking “why tonic?”

A “tonic” is something that gives a feeling of vigor or well-being; invigorating – that is an exact reflection of the events that I look forward to planning for you!

My passion for planning began long before I even knew what “I wanted to be when I grew up”.  At a young age I was exposed to the hospitality industry from the back kitchen of the catering company where my mom worked which eventually led to my first job as a hostess in a restaurant. There was a natural progression into the hotel industry and eventually into 3rd party and corporate planning where I have spent the majority of my career.   I have over 15 years of planning events both as a client and a vendor and look forward to working with you to create an event that both inspires and educates your attendees. I am a natural problem solver and thrive under pressure and I love nothing more than seeing all of the hard work come together onsite for a flawless event.

Whether it be conferences, seminars or retreats I look forward to the opportunity to invigorate your events and create a truly memorable experience for each attendee.

Services tonic can provide include (but are not limited to):

  • Event Proposals & Budgets
  • Site Selection
  • Contract Negotiations
  • Vendor Management
  • Onsite Event Management

I received my Certified Meeting Planner designation in 2014 and am a member of MPI.

What invigorates ME? – watching my children find their passion – the hustle of being onsite at an event – kickboxing –new stationery – pink Gerber daisies – Italian food – the beach – yoga
