Her passion for event planning began from managing university events such as cultural galas, conferences, enrichment programs, grand openings, orientations, award ceremonies, and luncheons while studying at George Mason University. By providing her expertise in events planning, she coordinated private parties for friends and planned weddings for family, which led to becoming a certified professional bridal consultant, and launching her own events planning company.
