OWNER & CREATIVE MASTERMIND
Superheroes and Rockstars - that's how I want every client to feel about LP! after we helped throw their party, fete, shindig, soiree, bash, whatever! My mind is constantly buzzing and looking for inspiration for ways to make each event absolutely perfect. My super power is coming up with uber creative elements that people remember and then turning those ideas into a reality with Michelle. I love that look of "happy" when you see our creation come to life! I can't thank my team of Rockstars enough - they are the most hard working, talented, real, and SUPER FUN women - Together we bring the Party!
A big shout out goes to my husband who has the patience of a saint and to the coolest kids ever, Ella Rae and Sully. Thank you for tolerating my craziness! I am a passionate foodie, avid traveler, true crime obsessed, and a self proclaimed dog whisperer. If I am not wearing my party hat, I live for quality time with my family, hanging with my dog, watching way too much TV, car karaoke to anything 90s, and chilling with my homies with a extra dirty gin martini in hand.
My guilty pleasure is shopping for the latest and hippest sneakers. I must confess that I even plan my seasonal wardrobes around them. I collect kicks like some women collect handbags!
STAGING SUPERHERO & LOGISTICAL LEGEND
I’m a mom of two very busy girls, a beach lover and avid runner. I have to work out every day but that’s also because I could live on pizza and charcuterie boards!
My motto in life is “celebrate every day” and I truly do that. As my husband jokes, I make every day feel like Christmas. My friends call me “the fancy one” and I love to bring a little “bling” to every party.
With a background in logistics and operations for CBS Sports and News, I thrive under pressure. I love walking into an empty venue and leaving our client with an unforgettable event. There’s nothing better than working hand-in-hand with Mara and bringing some of our outrageous, yet amazing, ideas to life!
My family is the center of my world and I love throwing over-the-top bashes for them. When not working, I can be found on the sidelines of soccer and lacrosse games, making a mess with our girls, walking our chocolate lab, having a glass of wine with my husband on our deck and listening to 80’s music, or planning our next vacation!
I love to work hard but I love to celebrate and especially love the indulgence of sleeping in late (or what I now perceive as late!) on the weekends.
CONFETTI CONSPIRATOR & ASPIRING ACROBAT
Although I'm new to the party business, I'm no stranger to enjoying one. Full disclosure, Mara's my sister, so I've been around the disco ball a few times. My favorite party props are a chilled tequila, a well crafted charcuterie board, and good friends. I am always up for a challenge and you'll often find me balancing from a ladder to make sure the decor is perfectly placed. I want every LP! client to be blown away by how magically Mara and Michelle's plans come together for their event. If I am not hanging upside down to hang a banner, I am on the prowl for LP! Whether I am shopping close to home or hunting for hidden gems while traveling, I am always on the lookout for new products and businesses to work with.
When I'm not working, you'll find me with my son, who is my ride or die. I love all adventures, from snowboarding at our local mountain, to tubing on the river, and especially visiting far away friends and places. I'm grateful to have a wonderful husband who indulges all of my grandiose ideas and lets me make them happen!
GRAPHICS GURU & PURVEYOR OF FLAIR
I love a good theme party... and with that, creating all the little design elements that bring it from JV to Varsity! I take Mara and Michelle's design visions and whip out graphics unique to each LP! event from stickers, to flags, to posters and neon signs. I love the challenge of designing for each of the different party personalities and adding the graphical flair to tie in the theme.
When I'm not anchored to Adobe Creative Suite, you'll find me chauffeuring my two kids (ages 10 and 12) around to various sporting events. Along with my husband, as a family we love the great outdoors of our little town all year round - from mountain biking, lake days, and camping to snowboarding and cozying up by the fire on cold winter nights. When I can carve out the time, I love a good ladies night out with some wine and conversation. (That or just binge watching a show from the comfort of my bed with the pup curled by my side!)
