At the age of four I was in my first wedding. Little did I know that moment would lead to a lifetime of participating in and overseeing one of the most important days in a couple’s life. In college, I became a hospitality major in large part because I had no idea what I wanted to do and my dad had been the General Manager of a hotel for many years before I came into the picture. When hearing the stories of his days in the hotel world, I thought that could be a good fit and had my first job in hospitality working the front desk of a hotel for a summer in Wisconsin.
After many internships in Chicago during my college years, I found LOLA through the sorority community at DePaul and the rest somewhat fell into place! Working towards an end goal is definitely a motivator for me! Seeing everything come together in one beautiful, love filled day is the cherry on top. Clearly, my life wasn’t wedding filled enough, because I’ve also worked for a bridesmaids store in the Gold Coast. It definitely gave me another look at the wedding industry and what goes into the decision making process for many brides and grooms. When I have a free weekend you can find me at my families lake house, trying new restaurants in the city, watching the Blackhawks dominate or just curling up with a good book.
