Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… Netflix and chilin’ with a very spicy Bloody Mary in hand.

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… traveling to Europe with my husband for two weeks. We spent time in London, Paris and the Tuscany Region of Italy, which was by far our favourite. The food, wine, countryside, architecture- everything was just amazing!

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… Australia! But I will probably never make it there because I can’t stand being on a plane for that long.

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… getting to create lasting relationships with really amazing couples and their families!

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE/DO… something with animals. I LOVE animals, especially dogs. I always tell my husband that when we are older I am going to start my own dog rescue!

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE… don’t give in to current fads. Create a day that is meaningful to you and your families, regardless of what is “expected”.

THE PETS I OWN ARE… All rescues! Trixie (Shepard Mix), Penny (Shepard Mix) and Sparkie (Chihuahua). I am a crazy dog mom and love them all like my own child.
