Getting to know me a little 

I’m British !!
I was born in Greenwich,London and grew up in the North of England.I showed early signs of entertaining by making lots of tea (not unusual in the UK) and making custom designed apple pies for my neighbors. At college I studied Hotel, Catering and Institutional Management and then went on to work in various fabulous Five Star hotels in London for many years before being transferred to California with Le Meridien Hotels.

I LOVE to travel:

Highlights over the past few years include Bali, Italy, Russia and the Baltic’s as well as the Mediterranean.


1. I am an avid Ice Hockey fan and share season tickets for the Anaheim Ducks.

2. I used to compete in Irish Dancing competitions when I was young with my friend Maureen Kerrigan.

3 Most treasured possessions: My engagement ring and  sapphire rings from my mother and mother in law.

4. I have 2 boys Aaron (19)and Tom (15) who along with my husband Chris are truly the loves of my life.

My Philosophy :
I love what I do and I believe every day we have a choice to make a difference in the world and change up the energy around us for the greater good. Even if its just a kind smile to a stranger, calling a friend to tell them how much they are loved or dancing around the kitchen. – Make a choice to be HAPPY !

The same applies to planning a wedding, stay happy, stay positive, stay connected , hire me  🙂 and all will be well !
