Meet the Team
As a family run business I have grown up with the lodge as my own back yard. Being a part of the lodge team and seeing the behind the scenes of their events is what inspired me to pursue Event Coordinating as my career.
I studied Event Marketing at BCIT and have worked my way up over the past 10 years to manage the events with the lodge. I am a very hands on with all of our couples, and take every patience to guide you through the planning process. It is no joke that planning a wedding is like taking on a second job, so I have always done my best to help our couples take a load off.
In my personal life, I am an avid traveler. I have used the benefit of working seasonally to my advantage and been fortunate enough to visit many countries throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, and Central America. I enjoy traveling with friends but have also gone solo on trips as well. In addition to my backpacking experiences, I have been able to be apart of an animal volunteer program in South Africa, and I have spent time as aupair in Germany.
At home I spend time with my friends, close knit family, and of course my dog Buddy. My hobbies include, dog walks on the dike, snowbaording, hiking, reading, and dining out.
I hope that you will choose the lodge as your Wedding venue, as it would be a pleasure to meet you and to work alongside you to make your dream wedding come true! I am passionate about my career in events, and connecting with people throughout all avenues of my life, hopefully we will connect soon!
